President Armstrong's Message about Accessibility
Cal Poly President Jeffrey D. Armstrong recorded this short video message for Cal Poly's celebration of Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), which was held on Thursday, May 19th, 2016. The video includes English subtitles:
Free Alt Media Self-Service
Thanks to the generosity of Kennedy Library, all Cal Poly campus members can now use a free self-service, alternate media solution called SensusAccess. This service automatically converts files into a range of alternate media including audio books (e.g., mp3), e-books (e.g., EPUB3, Mobi) and digital Braille. It also converts inaccessible files, such as image-only PDFs, into more accessible ones. Select Convert a file to use SensusAccess.
Please note that SensusAccess is a supplement to the DRC Alt Media Services, not a replacement for it.
