The University of Missouri contracts with Mizzou to have textbooks reproduced in Alternate Text format or E-Text. This service ensures that students with print disabilities have equal access to their text materials. Their are many methods of accessing text materials in alternate formats.

Some VERY important issues to consider when it comes to E-Text:

Mizzou processes several HUNDRED text books each semester between the two campuses. Requests for text can take time. This is why it is VERY important to choose classes and get text books As Soon As Possible!

It is common for Alternate Text or E-text to be confused with the electronic format that many publishers are offering students instead of the old fashion textbook. THE ELECTRONIC FORM OF THE TEXTBOOK IS NOT ACCESSIBLE TO STUDENTS USING TEXT TO SPEECH OR SCREEN READING PROGRAMS.

Be sure to include a course syllabus with each text book request. You may not immediately get the entire textbook prepared for your class, but the syllabus ensures that you get the material you need on time!

If you need to add or drop a course and require E-text, you have to understand that it may take time for your newly requested textbook to be converted to E-text. This is especially tough at the beginning of each semester, your cooperation is requested and appreciated.

How to Access your Alternate-Text:

Before Alternate-Text can be accessed, you will need to select a text to speech program. If you are using a Macintosh type computer there are built in accessibility functions such as Voice Over which reads information that is displayed on the screen.
