Overview of Ally for Students

How do you prefer to engage with digital learning content? Do you read on your phone or tablet, use a screen reader, like to annotate and highlight, or listen to an audio version?

Ally allows you to download “Alternative Formats” of your instructor’s digital course files and content so that you can engage with your course materials in formats that work better with your devices, assistive technologies, and study tools.
