Editorial Information: Support Centre for Students with Special Needs Masaryk University. Brno. Version VII.2 2014
The present material does not aim to provide or directly set out an exhaustive summary of of measures that may be taken when adapting texts for the needs of visually impaired readers or should be implemented, as each new text potentially brings with it additional specificities that require an individual approach and possibly new solutions. Text "only" summarises the principles followed by the Teiresiás staff in the processing of electronic texts, offering the experience gained in this field over the last few years, based on feedback from the readers themselves.
All the methods and procedures outlined do not, therefore, guarantee, and can never guarantee, their absolute universality and validity. Nevertheless, they are a representative sample of the types of documents with which we encounter most often in the university environment: texts of a professional nature - in their black-print form, richly structured and often sophisticatedly formatted, accompanied by diagrams, tables, charts, figures, containing various national character sets, special symbols in the natural sciences, humanities or arts.
