When reading is not enough?

“Accessibility is a key area for the University of Derby. Making sure all of our materials are accessible for our students however they want to interact with them. This session focuses on our journey to add to our range of delivery methods with the ability for students have their learning materials read to them. We will talk about how we implemented it, testing and how we intend to go forwards. We will cover any issues we have faced and tips for overcoming them.”
– Sandra Stevenson-Revill
