New licence extends print for disabled learners

Good news for students or staff with dyslexia or other disabilities affecting their ability to digest printed information:-

The Copyright Licensing Agency recently announced a new Print Disability Licence which ensures that educational institutions are covered when adapting text to alternative formats – either in print or digital.

The Print Disability Licence allows organisations to reproduce copyright works in a format accessible to people with print disabilities (e.g. dyslexia), such as large print, braille or audiobooks.

This news was shared by the JISC Regional Support Centre [Scotland] online Newsfeed.
