[Athen] help with alternative form of ebook

I am helping my Disability Services Coordinator find an accessible version
of an ebook provided by Pearson for a student. The name of the book
is *Nursing

: A Concept-Based Approach to Learning, Volume I and II*. We got a pdf

version through AccessText but it is not accessible. This particular
student is using Natural Reader and the reading order is all messed up.

First of all, has anyone, by chance, run into this same issue with this
exact book? If so, I'd love to know how you found an accessible version.

Secondly, we are novices when it comes to this scenario. Does anyone have
any recommendations as to what is the next best step for troubleshooting
this? Would you suggest pushing back on Pearson to help us get an
accessible version or would we be better served to just find a vendor who
would re-mediate this document at a cost?

Thanks in advance for your help!
