Accessible PDFs cam work as long as the languages are marked up. Me personally, I would prefer either Word or HTML documents, but that’s personal preference more than anything.

If the language is set for the different sections, then JAWS will switch to the appropriate language for both speech and braille.

Hi ATHENites,

I’m reaching out regarding any experience you may have with providing alternate format materials for foreign language courses. For Fall 19, we have a deaf/blind student registered for Italian. He uses braille and JAWS and typically requests accessible .pdfs, but I’m wondering if this will be sufficient considering the particular challenges related to learning a foreign language.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated… and feel free to contact off-list at jillian.pfau at montgomerycollege.edu<mailto:jillian.pfau at montgomerycollege.edu>.

Best regards,
