Behind the Scenes of Accessible Content

We are pleased to share a video that Scholars Portal has produced about the Accessible Content ePortal (ACE), a service that students registered with Ryerson’s Student Learning Support services can use: https://youtu.be/QsURuUpnqTc

 This video shows how Accessible Content ePortal (ACE) service support staff convert library print materials into accessible formats, following the progression of a digitization request from the initial meeting with an accessibility coordinator to the moment the library user is able to read the book using their preferred technology.

The Accessible Content E-Portal (ACE) supports users with print disabilities at participating Ontario universities and colleges by making library collections accessible through an online platform. ACE contains a variety of library books which have been digitized and made available in accessible formats. Eligible users can also request books to be digitized and added to the collection on demand through our on-demand digitization service.  A centralized and standardized production centre is provided by our digitization partner Internet Archive Canada, allowing participating schools to access high-quality digitized materials in five accessible formats.
