How do students access the alternative formats of the documents uploaded into a course?

For any file uploaded to Blackboard Learn, students have the ability to download those files in a variety of different accessible formats including tagged pdfs, electronic Braille, audio files and more. 

1. Log into Blackboard Learn and access a course. Then, open the course folder that contains the file you would like to download. 

2. When hovering your mouse over a file, a grey downward facing chevron will appear. Click on it to open the file options.
