Braille textbooks and other course materials are arranged through the services for students with disabilities offices in collaboration with faculty. Converting text materials to Braille requires specialized skills and considerable time requirements. As much as several months advance notice may be necessary to convert textbooks to Braille. Any materials not provided with sufficient advance notice will need to be made accessible through other methods (e.g. vocalized text for an exam) unless a college or university has the ability to produce Braille materials on short notice.
