An EEAAP describes how the institution will provide "equally effective alternative access" to information or services provided by a technology that is less accessible or not accessible to students with disabilities. Equally effective alternative access is based on (1) timeliness of delivery, (2) accuracy of translation, and (3) delivery method or medium appropriate to the disability of the person. The purpose for these alternates is to afford students with disabilities equal opportunity to obtain the same result as those who are not disabled, gain the same benefit or reach the same level of achievement.
When purchasing software or educational resources, some materials may not be fully accessible to all users. If a Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) has been completed by a software manufacturer, there may be certain language included in the VPAT that indicates inaccessible elements of the product. "Supports with Exceptions" and "Does not Support" terminology in the VPAT reflect inaccessible elements. If no VPAT is available or if the VPAT shows signs of inaccessibility, then the purchaser should request a product review by an ECU IT Accessibility Consultant:
