Alternative Media services convert printed text to other formats, such as audio or digital (scanned on to CD). Scanned text can be used with reader software to add audio reading as well as other features to enhance readability of texts. These services contribute to the academic success of the students we serve as well as providing meaningful experience for our student workers.

"Helping others helps me realize where my strengths are." Jung-Ho Lee, former Alternative Media Technician.
