The Alternative Media Production Center (AMPC) produces media that allow students with disabilities to read their class curriculum in alternative ways. Formats include, but are not limited to, Braille, Word, pdf, mp3 files and Daisy files. 

The center also produces digital copies of books, journal articles and other handouts into formats students need so they can keep up with their academic reading. There are various software programs that students use such as Jaws, Wynn, Read and Write and Kurzweil.
