Software Recommendations

We provide software recommendations to read and use the various formats we produce along with links to tutorials. Some are free, a few are fairly inexpensive, and some cost quite a bit of money. Talk to your disability services counsellor about your eligibility for grants to pay for assistive technology.

While we will do our best to help users, we primarily help students with issues specifically related to using the files we provide. If you have issues with specific devices or software, we recommend contacting your coordinator for in person help or contacting the device or software provider.

Please let us know if you find any particular software or tutorials that you have found helpful that we do not have listed so that we can add it to our site.

Tutorials for Devices

We frequently get questions on how to load and use files on various devices. We have picked a few tutorials below to help you. Please feel free to suggest others for us to add.


iOS (iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch)

While tutorials are frequently made for one specific iOS device, the tutorials should apply to all iOS devices.
