An e-file accommodation provides students with an accessible version of textbooks. E-files can be used with a screen reader to read the material aloud. Another feature of an e-file includes the ability to enlarge the text. The Waubonsee Community College Bookstore orders e-files for students that are signed up with the Access Center and are approved for e-files.
