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.
