Alternative formats

You will save time when producing alternate formats if you create documents with accessibility in mind.

If requested by a user, it is a legal requirement to provide documents, leaflets, electronic resources etc in an alternative format.

Alternative format examples:

  • large print
  • Braille
  • a paper copy of an electronic resource or vice versa
  • electronic resource in an alternative format, e.g. Word document instead of PDF

Documents do not need to be produced in alternative formats until a request has been received. However, if you are producing video, it must be accessible.

For requests for alternative formats or further advice please contact the IT Helpdesk.
