Alternatives for Visual Information
Images and video may be one of the most effective ways to display and share information with students. However, for students with visual impairments, this method of delivery is not beneficial for learning. When designing multimedia learning material, the designer should provide alternatives to visual representations. Examples of these include touch equivalents, physical and spacial models, and providing cues for visual information. Text to Speech, which is providing audio files for all images, graphics, and animations, is one of the more popular alternatives.
