American Foundation for the Blind Textbooks and Instructional Materials Solutions Forum

National Instructional Materials Access Center Opens!

At 12:00 a.m. on Sunday, December 3, 2006, the National Instructional Materials Access Center (NIMAC) began operations at the American Printing House for the Blind!!
The mission of the NIMAC is to serve as the national repository of publishers' electronic files of print instructional materials in the National Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAS) format. The NIMAC is the conduit through which the NIMAS files are made available to authorized users, who can then convert them into accessible textbooks for elementary or secondary school students with qualifying disabilities.
The NIMAC was established through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) of 2004, and it is funded by the United States Department of Education's Office of Special Education Projects.
More information about NIMAS and NIMAC is available here:
