One of the greatest obstacles that visually impaired students have to overtake during their high school and university careers is having accessible educational resources as their mates have, namely, books, slides, study material, tests, exercises, and so on.

Unfortunately, up to now having these documents promptly ready as their need arise has not been possible.

In our presentation, we will show how to produce the different kind of resources needed during study years in a manner that makes them both accessible by visually impaired and easy to be produced with everyday software tools (i.e., MS Word, Design Science MathType, Open Office).

We will demonstrate through examples the steps needed to create accessible digital documents with scientific contents (formulae, equations, expressions, and diagrams).
