Access for Individuals with Visual Impairments

University of Maine students and faculty that have presented, and been approved, for related accommodation or disability through the Office of Disability Support will receive the following services.

Education Week is in the process of making its content accessible to individuals with visual impairments. In the meantime, the College of Education and Human Development will provide the accessibility services described here.

Individuals with visual impairments can access Education Week content by contacting Roxanne McGreevy at 207.581.2455 or by email at rmlee@maine.edu.

This service is available 24/7 and during breaks and summer months. Roxanne will check the phone line and email for requests periodically each day, including once during the evening. Upon receiving a request, Roxanne will contact the consumer as quickly as possible and provide the following options:

  • An auditory review of the titles in Education Week and read the specific articles of interest to the person making the request.
  • If requested, a search of the Education Week database based on the specific topics identified by the individual seeking this service.
  • If requested, audio recording(s) of the article(s) of interest will be made and transmitted to the consumer via email.

Education Week Newsletters

University of Maine students may also request access to Education Week Newsletters from Student Accessibility Services and University of Maine faculty and staff can request access to the newsletter through the Office of Equal Opportunity. The offices will download the PDF version of the newsletter, check it for accessibility, and either correct the PDF or create a separate text-only version and send it to the consumer via email.

This support can be requested by contacting:

Student Accessibility Services 207.581.2319 or by email at um.sas@maine.edu.
Office of Equal Opportunity 207.581.1226, equal.opportunity@maine.edu.
