The University of California, Berkeley, has agreed to speed up how long it takes to convert printed materials from its library collections, such as textbooks, into accessible formats for students with disabilities. The plan calls for having timelines for fulfilling requests and offering self-scanning equipment to students. The deal is part of a settlement with Disability Rights Advocates, a nonprofit representing three Berkeley students who said they were unable to obtain assignments in accessible digital formats in a timely manner.
