Introducing Ally at Stirling

You may have noticed a new symbol appearing in your Canvas modules.  

This letter A with a download symbol is for Alternative Formats.  

You can use this to view/use the content in Canvas in different ways, depending on your needs. When you click on the A, you are given a list of different options, including ePub, Electronic Braille, Audio (MP3), BeeLine Reader or a translation.  

You can find out more about using Alternative formats at the link below:
