APH Accessible Catalog Download Center
The APH Instructional Products Catalog lists a wide variety of accessible kits, aids, tools, and supplies that are useful to blind and visually impaired people at home, at work, or at school! This catalog is a complete listing of APH products, except for textbooks.
A catalog of commonly requested replacement parts is bound into the Instructional Products Catalog.
Our catalog can be previewed in your browser or it can be downloaded to your computer. For maximum accessibility, we recommend downloading the file and opening it with Adobe Reader. See “Screen Reader Setup” below.
Screen Reader Setup for APH Catalog
In order to experience all the benefits of “Heading and Link Navigation” in the APH catalog, you will need to download it to your computer, and view it using Adobe Reader.
Once you have Adobe Reader installed in your computer, you will need to change a setting so Adobe can load all the pages of the catalog at once. By default, Adobe is set up so that assistive technology looks at 50 pages at a time. While this is adequate in most circumstances, with a document as long as the APH Catalog it causes the accessibility features to break.
This setting may be changed in the Accessibility Setup Assistant dialogue.
The Accessibility Setup Assistant dialogue has four (4) screens. The setting we need to change is in the fourth screen.
- Open the Accessibility from the Edit Menu and select “Setup Assistant.”
- Select the option that reads “Set all accessibility options” which is checked initially, and press the Next Button.
- Press the Next Button in the next 2 screens. No settings need to be changed in the second or third screens.
- In the fourth screen, select the option that reads “Read the entire document at once.”
- Accept the changes and you are set.
Note: Another piece of information for those individuals using JAWS is to use the JAWS Find command, INSERT+CTRL+F. The use of Control + F is not recommended for people using screen readers.
Ex Officio Trustees can request multiple copies of APH catalogs using the EOT Promotional Materials Request Form.
