Who benefits from using alternate media?


Based on their educational limitations, students use alternate media in different ways.
  • Some students benefit from hearing the text read aloud by using a computer program that reads with a synthesized voice.  Students either read along on the computer or with their textbooks.
  • Some students read Braille.
  • Some students need their materials in larger print.  Instructional material can be enlarged on a copy machine.  Students can also use a CCTV to magnify the text or a computer program like Zoomtext to enlarge the text on a computer monitor.
