Ally for Web button.

Additionally, NKU has adopted Ally for web.  This innovative tool allows users to choose alternative formats to access web content.

Each NKU webpage contains an Alternative formats button, located in the lower right portion of the browser.  The button allows users to choose the desired page or file, then pick the format that meets their needs.
