Currently, each university creates their own accessible files each semester for students who are visually impaired or print disabled. While universities have an obligation to offer equal (accessible) access to materials, publishers are not required to provide accessible formats. UVA's proposes to bridge multiple accessible-text sites between universities by collecting accessible digital libraries, creating a searchable data base and sharing these digital files to anyone in higher education. This project is called EMMA: Educational Materials Made Accessible.
