Creating Accessible Course Readings

Course packs and any readings that will be posted on a course management program, such as Moodle, should have optical character recognition (OCR). A document with OCR is readable by a computer program; enabling it to be read aloud by text to speech programs such as Zabaware, Google Reader, and Natural Reader (iOS). Documents created in Word have OCR. However, Images, scans and PDF’s do not - unless they have been converted.
