An electronic text is a document that is read in digital form, and especially a document that
is mainly text. In order to make an E-text, we take a printed or scanned document, we convert
it into an electronic format and we make it readable by a Braille display or a voice
synthesizer (JAWS). An e-text can be converted into several accessible formats to meet
students various needs. It is an electronic plain text to which we add tags.
Another interesting tool from Jymico. The accessible PDF file is a digital document which was
structured through a suitable marking. It consists in adding marks that are not visible,
but used by adapted reading tools like the screen readers. All these elements allow users of
adaptive technology to comprehend and easily navigate content.
To specify the nature of each content, we add tags. It is possible to determine whether the
information is a title, a subtitle, a paragraph, an annotation, a list, etc. If necessary, we
can tag images to add replacement text and tables to specify reading order, and so on. This
service significantly improves navigation through the document.
An audio file is a document read aloud on a compact disc or a digital format such as MP3
according to several specifications. The recorded texts have different sources:
course notes, exams, forms, novels, documentaries, etc. Quite often, the writing of
an audio script is necessary in order to adapt the content and make it easier to understand.
All documents are recorded in our soundproof booths which meet the highest quality
standards. This service is intended for all: young or adult, blind or visually impaired.
An audio document may be suitable as well for the beginning readers who struggle
with reading. It also helps to make accessible complicated, difficult but very
important texts such as an exam or a form to fill.
