Accesstext Overview

What our members are saying
  • It is basically just easy to use! I’ve never had an issue with it and if I had any questions - easy to get in touch with people to answer my questions. So, really overall a great experience.

    Ashley CiccoliniAssistant Director of Student Accessibility Services, Florida Atlantic University

  • I think it’s a fabulous resource. I appreciate that there is a central resource somewhere that I can go to get all of the information I need.

    Cindy MorganSenior Coordinator of Disability Support Services, Palo Alto College

  • The big thing is the different file formats, we can get the PDF, we can get DOC or sometimes TXT formats, so it makes it easy, comes right in the email and is quickly downloadable. I mean, you couldn’t ask for much more than that!

    David SanfordAdaptive Technology Coordinator, Austin Peay State University

  • The biggest way that AccessText impacts my work is that it’s the first place that I go to when I’m searching for an accessible textbook. If they have it, it saves me time and money and it makes sure that my students get accessible textbooks in the fastest way possible.

    Stephanie StaleyDisability Support Services Coordinator, Concordia University Portland

  • AccessText is just wonderful. The interface is really easy to use. It’s really easy to search for books. The turnaround time is remarkably fast.

    Nicole SubikAssistant Director of Learning Support Services, Villanova University

  • It makes it so much easier not having to scan a book myself… just having the publisher-quality PDF is incredibly invaluable.
