    One of the main issues I had at Uni as a student that was blind was getting my essential texts in a good time frame. Either it took forever for the Uni to get things organised or copyright law got in the way of a logical system of getting content to students with access issues. 

    Luckily, as of last year this should be more straight forward with the creation of the Marrakesh Treaty. Essentially it allows loopholes in countries copyright laws so people that have issues accessing print can get their texts quickly. There's an article in the news feed...

There's an article in the news feed section of this page with a link that explains more. Just in case somebody tries to tell you copyright is blocking you from being able to learn equally.
