Ally is an accessibility tool free to all students, and is available in Brightspace (the University's Virtual Learning Environment). The tool enables you to access your study materials in the best format for you.

Ally can help you change the format of the documents uploaded by your lecturers to give you improved access and more flexibility, depending on your needs or the way in which you prefer to study. For example, you may be able to covert a document into an audio file or electronic braille.

In Brightspace, you will notice the Ally alternative formats icon alongside your study resources.
