DRC Text Conversion Service

Most textbooks are provided by the publisher in print format only. This creates an educational barrier for students who read differently. For these students, DRC converts required print materials to alternative formats. Formats available are electronic, Braille and enlarged. DRC works directly with students to convert textbooks. Although faculty are not directly involved in this process, they can assist by choosing a textbook in a timely manner and choosing a publisher that offers an electronic format option. Faculty may plan to use other print documents in the classroom, such as a syllabus, study guides, articles from journals, etc. Faculty can submit these handouts to DRC for text conversion as necessary. In cases where instructors make these documents available online or have them in electronic format, text conversion is usually not necessary. If you have questions regarding this matter, please contact DRC at 309-298-2512 or Disability@wiu.edu.
