Universal Design in Learning

Support on Campus

At NAU, we have access to Ally alternative formats! It's a great tool to check for accessibility scores and will automatically make alt formats available to students in Bb Learn.

Available formats to download for students include:

  • OCRed PDF- an accessible type of PDF file.
  • HTML- provides a version one can view in any browser.
  • ePUB- allows for a functional way to read on mobile devices.
  • Electronic braille- provides a way to read braille electronically.
  • Audio- provides an MP3 file that one can listen to on the go.
