Perusall is committed to making our social learning platform accessible to as many students as possible. Perusall has several features that can be leveraged to increase accessibility of reading materials and assignments to students:
- The ability for instructors to upload materials in PDF or EPUB format in addition to the textbooks available from publishers. Instructors can easily make alternate versions of materials available to students with particular needs. Instructor-uploaded materials are made available to students at no cost to the student.
- Students can have course materials read aloud to them from within Perusall without having to use specialized screen reader software.
- Resizable and responsive user interface components, and zooming or resizing to change text size within the reading materials.
- A "dark mode" with a darker user interface that is more readable in low light conditions.
