Using the AMAC Student Download Center

Membership in AMAC means that students will be able to access their textbooks in a format that best meets their needs, including E-Text, Audiobook, or Braille. Orders for textbooks must be placed by the disability service provider (DSP) at the school. Contact the DSP for additional information. Braille orders will be shipped to the DSP, while E-Text and Audiobook orders will be available for download.

  1. Check the status of book orders
  2. Download completed electronic book files
  3. Download software that will read books out loud
  4. Place a request for alternative format textbooks
