ICAM and MackinVia: A digital/audio solution for students who qualify for Accessible Educational Materials (AEM)
- PATINS Trainings
- 05.19.2022 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Description: In a new partnership with the ICAM, MackinVIA™ delivers a digital/audio solution for students who require accessible formats of print instructional materials, giving them access to over 70,000 titles including current popular fiction as well as many of the classics. As in the past, ICAM provides accessible formats without a fee for students who have a documented print disability.
Students with a documented print disability and an IEP are eligible for an account with MackinVia™ at no charge through the ICAM. MackinVIA™ formats that we will purchase are eBooks, Read-Along, and Audio depending on what is available to purchase from the publishers. Read-Along titles are enhanced with embedded audio, synchronized to offer automatic page-turn functionality. All narrations are professionally performed by talented voice actors, with each word highlighted as the audio is read.
Although the MackinVIA™ library does not include textbooks, there are subject categories of titles that will match up with most, if not all content areas. Come join us for an overview!
