Notice Boards

"Visually impaired students have difficulty in extracting information from displayed notices.  Departments should ensure that any information posted in this way is sent electronically or given verbally to students who cannot read the notice boards.  Always check that students can access their student email and the web without any problems.  The first few weeks can sometimes prove difficult if students are waiting to receive new equipment.  A text only version of the departmental web site is usually more accessible for visually impaired students. " (Swansea University Guidance)
