    Adaption of OpenStax Astronomy: Low-Vision / Blind Accessible Textbook

    Adaption of OpenStax Astronomy: Low-Vision / Blind Accessible Textbook

    Overview

    This is a low-vision and blind accessible adaptation of the OpenStax Astronomy textbook (.doc files). This was adapted for use with screen readers and to include essential images with alt-text and high contrast images added. Some text and chapters were removed to fit a single semester course. Word documents are used to allow for easy accessibility and the content should be legible even at 400% zoom.

    Multiple Choice quizzes can be found on the OpenStax website with a free, registered instructor account.
