The Copyright Licencing Agency HE licence has always allowed the University to create accessible versions of books and journals for visually-disabled students. This would normally be a text file, such as a PDF, that works with a text-to-speech program. The Library could use OCR (optical character recognition) to create these text files providing a suitable file was not already available.

The licence has recently been extended to cover students with any ‘print disability’, including dyslexia – and this is significant since this is the most widespread disability encountered.  More details here.
