Large Print – Braille – Tactile Diagrams –
eText & Accessible PDF’s – Audio – BSL videos


A lot has changed for students and staff over the last few months, but there are still students with disabilities who need accessible course material, letters, and prospectuses – plus the latest COVID-19 regulations from your institution in their preferred format.

A2i are open; we can help quickly and we are flexible

We work with universities and colleges across the UK and have a lot of experience transcribing education documents.

A2i have a fast turnaround time, and can also dispatch course documents to you or your student on a weekly, monthly, or termly basis depending on your requirements and timetables.

Documents can be adapted for maximum accessibility by specific individuals, such as changes in layout, font size, paper colour, voice artist and much more.


A range of printed alternative formats
