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.
