Thank you both for the congratulatory messages. I had to send out a message
to my new professors yesterday requesting textbook information and I was
surprised to receive messages back from 4 out of the 5 professors. However,
only 2 of the professors provided book information, 1 is going to provide it
this week, and 1 is trying to push me into another section *LOL*. The reason
this is, she will have to change her material around to make it accessible
and it would be easier to push me off on someone else. She made the claim
that her text will not be ready until later in the summer and that there are
2 other sections she knows uses a standard text, 1 is even online she says
*LOL*. I would love to take the class online as they would ultimately save
me time and money, but I have never done so and I do not know if it is even
accessible. Luckily though when I am requesting text information, I include
my disability services coordinator in on the messages, his name is David.
That was another thing, I sent the message to her, my name is Josh as
everyone who can read knows *LOL*, when she responded back she addressed
David only. When I responded to David I included her in the message
regarding the point of accessibility in these other sections and the fact
that her class fit into my schedule. He did respond back and told her that
all sections have to be made accessible to students with disabilities.
Basically no ifs and buts about it. He also gave her an option of giving us
the textbook information, the sections that will be used, and letting us get
the various books she is going to pull from in order to make her text.

      It is kind of ironic that she directed me to an online course because
prior to sending out the messages requesting my book information, my
coordinator in the disability office sent me a message. The message was
requesting my presence at an online accessibility presentation that he is
co-presenting on. This presentation is going to be given to the faculty and
used to help them design their online courses with keeping accessibility in
mind. He said that my presence and feedback would more than likely be
valuable to the faculty in his opinion providing they use it.
