Alternate Media

Alternate Media is an accommodation for eligible Ventura College students who have a print disability due to vision, learning or mobility limitations. It's an accommodation that is evaluated and approved by an Educational Assistance Center (EAC) counselor.

Alternate Media is the process of converting inaccessible content, such as printed textbooks, to an electronic format that is accessible to a student's assistive technology device or software.
