Faculty requirements to provide accessible texts and other course materials for DRC Students are mandatory. But what exactly happens to books and/or printed materials to make them accessible? What can a professor do to expedite and help the DRC and the student in this process? Andrew Luiz, Assistive Technology/Disability Specialist, will shed light on these questions by explaining the text conversion process.  Faculty Obligations to provide DRC student access to print media will also be discussed.
