Alternate formats involve the conversion of information from one format into another in order to make the content more accessible. Conestoga's Alternate Format Policy (pdf) details the range of general, academic and library resources that are eligible for conversion into an alternate format.
The most common examples of alternate formats is the conversion of print material into:
- Large print
- Electronic Text
If a student requires course material in an alternate format as part of their academic accommodation, Accessibility Services will work with the faculty and the student to make sure it is provided in a timely way. For any questions around alternate formats call the Adaptive Technology Lab at 519-749-5220 ext. 3643.
If you are a visitor to Conestoga and require something in an alternate format, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
