UTA Libraries believe education needs to be available to everyone, which means supporting the creation of free, open, and accessible educational resources. We are actively committed to increasing the accessibility and usability of the OER we produce.
Mavs Open Press uses Pressbooks to create and distribute OER. In May 2018, Pressbooks announced their accessibility policy, which outlines efforts and demonstrates commitment to making the software accessible. The web version of this resource has been designed with accessibility in mind by incorporating the following features.
- It has been optimized for people who use screen-reader technology.
- all content can be navigated using a keyboard.
- links, headings, tables are formatted to work with screen readers and images have alt tags.
- Information is not conveyed by color alone.
- Font may be resized from the tab on the top right of the screen.
OTHER FILE FORMATS
In addition to the web version, this book is available in a number of file formats, including PDF, EPUB (for eReaders), MOBI (for Kindles), and various editable files. These formats can be retrieved from the “Download this book” drop-down menu on the book’s home page.
