Our services

 Contact us to request any of the following services once you've registered with U of T's Accessibility Services.  

Alternate formats

We can have textual items in the library's collection converted to one of the following formats:

  • E-text
    • PDF, black and white or colour
    • Text-based DAISY
    • Plain text
    • epub
  • Digital audio through AERO
  • Braille through AERO
  • Large print

We will caption videos in the libraries' collections, which instructors have booked for class presentations or which are  requested by students for their research. For captioning of videos not held in the libraries' collections, instructors may wish to consult the Report on Accessible Media  for information about captioning services.

If the library's collections do not include the item you need, you can provide us with your own copy or we try to obtain print copies from other sources. 

Accessible Content E-Portal (ACE)

ACE (Accessible Content E-portal) supports all Ontario University libraries and provides unmediated access to a repository of library holdings in alternate formats. Once you register with the library's services, we provide you with a login token to access this repository. 

For more information about the ACE repository, including tutorials on how to use it, consult the Scholars Portal guide or watch these ACE tutorial videos: Getting Started and Navigating and Searching.
