All disabled people are now covered by copyright legislation where their impairment affects their ability to study or work on an equal basis as someone without impairment.

All copyright work can now be altered to an appropriate format, as long as suitable accessible copies are not available for purchase.

This may include:

  • making Braille, audio or large-print copies of books, newspapers or magazines for visually impaired people
  • adding audio description to films or broadcasts for visually impaired people
  • making subtitled films or broadcasts for deaf or hard of hearing people
  • making accessible copies of books, newspapers or magazines for dyslexic people
