Alternate Format Textbooks Requesting Books in Alternate Format

The Student Accessibility Center is partnered with websites BookShare and AccessText Network to accommodate students that require their textbooks in an alternate format, such as in

  • Screen Readable PDF Files
  • Audio Files

Step 1) Check with the publisher to see what alternate formats are already offered for you to purchase instead of a print copy. Many publishers offer digital versions of texts that screen-reading software can use. This may be the fastest option for you.

If the publisher does not offer a suitable format you can purchase, you may request your textbooks in an alternate format from the Student Accessibility Center.

Step 2) Purchase the required textbooks and keep a copy of the receipt.

Step 3) Complete the Alternative Book Request Form, you must log in with your UH Credentials for access.

**Upload Receipt on Question 13**

Please allow up to 1-2 business days for an update from the Justin Dart, Jr. Student Accessibility Center.

Note: Some publishers may not accept an alternate book request.
