Audio Book Request
Students who are registered with the Accessibility Resource Center (ARC) and have been approved for the alternative format/audio books accommodation may submit their request by completing the Audio Book Request form. Upon receiving your completed request AND proof of purchase/receipt of textbook(s) ARC will begin to fulfill your request.
If you are having difficulties when uploading a copy of your receipt, please bring the receipt to Founder's Hall, Room 99, or send a separate email to email@example.com with your proof of purchase.
**PLEASE NOTE** When requesting alternative formats/audio books, the process can be lengthy and may take between two to three weeks.
The ARC now provides electronic formats of textbooks when they are not already available at the Cabrini Book Store.
An online repository - www.Bookshare.org - provides books in a variety of formats. Bookshare books may be listened to using a variety of text-to-speech apps. It's free for students!
