Software provides digital, Braille books to students with disabilities

A new computer program is helping provide quicker access to digital and Braille textbooks for university students with disabilities. The Alternative Media Access Center provides the adapted textbooks to colleges in Georgia and hopes to provide the service to half of U.S. colleges by next year. "If I didn't have this service, I can tell you with 100 percent certainty that I would have failed my classes this semester," one student said. WCTV-TV (Tallahassee, Fla.)
