We’ve designed our content to be as accessible as possible.
If you require material that has been uploaded to Moodle in alternative formats, you can use Blackboard Ally to download documents in a range of more accessible file formats.
For material not hosted on Moodle, you can use SensusAccess.
The Kent alternative formats documents (on this page) outline the processes to follow for staff and students to access and create alternative formats.
Copyright conditions of use
You can make an accessible copy if you own the copyright (eg, it's your own work), have permission from the copyright holder, if the copyright has expired, or if it's for someone with a print disability.
If so you need to agree that:
- the copy won't be shared with others
- you can't find a commercially available version in an appropriate format
- you abide by the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act, 1988, Section 31A (Disabled persons: copies of works for personal use).

Using accessibility tools to read an alternative format
Most operating systems now include functionality for adapting content to be more accessible. For example text-to-speech tools in Apple’s OSX.
Similar features are also in mainstream applications, such as the Immersive Reader tool in Microsoft Office which can read text aloud and allow the user to customise the visual appearance of documents to meet their preferences.
