DONA - Accessible digital documents


Our DONA service quickly provides you with digitally reproduced content for students with perceptual disabilities.

What is DONA?

DONA (which stands for DOcument Numérique Accessible in French) is the name of our service that lets you easily obtain accessible digital documents. An accessible digital document is a PDF file without technological protection measures (TPMs) in a format compatible with technology tools that provide valuable features such as reading, writing and proofreading support for students with perceptual disabilities.

Who can use DONA?

You can request an accessible digital document for a student with a perceptual disability (e.g. sensory, physical or neurological) based on the analysis and action plan developed for that student.

Requests for digital content can be made by schools, school boards, CEGEPs, Centres collégiaux de soutien à l’intégration (CCSIs), universities, parents and students. CCSIs can also obtain a digital version in order to convert it to Daisy or MP3 format for a student who cannot use PDF format.
