Accessibility Statement

BCcampus Open Education believes that education must 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 textbooks and guides we produce.

Accessibility features of the web version of this resource

The web version of the OER By Discipline Guide has been designed with accessibility in mind by incorporating the following features:

  • All content can be navigated using a keyboard
  • It has been optimized for people who use screen-reader technology.
    • links and headings are formatted to work with screen readers
    • images have alt tags or are described in surrounding text
  • Information is not conveyed by colour alone.
  • There is an option to increase font size (see tab on top right of screen)

Other file formats available

This resource is updated regularly, so there are no additional file types publically posted. But if you require a different format (for example, a PDF, EPUB (for eReaders), MOBI (for Kindles), or other editable files) let us know, and we can provide them.
