New Law May Help Blind Get Accessible Books on Time

A buried provision the Higher
Education Opportunity Act may help blind and visually impaired students obtain accessible copies of textbooks on time. That's because the law requires colleges and universities to list the required textbooks for a class at the time of registration. The provision went into effect earlier this year, and may save students from scurrying around at the last minute in order to find a copy of a book, much less an accessible version. If you have access to a college registration system, let us know how or if your school is complying with the law in the comments. Via USA Today
