What is Alternate Media?

Alternate Media is an alternative medium of presentation from that in which work was originally done. In other words it is the same material, just in a different form. An example of Alternate Media is a book, originally published on a printing press, being recreated as a Braille book or audio format. The purpose of Alternate Media is to allow access to those people who, due to a sensory or processing disability, cannot easily use the standard materials.
