HTCTU Alternate Media eXchange


The AMX Database provides California community colleges and other higher education institutions a forum for identifying book materials created in alternate formats (e.g., braille, e-text, DAISY, etc.) for use by student’s with verified print disabilities. Additionally, the AMX Database provides a resource for managing and producing captioned videos for students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.

The intent of the AMX Database is to support cooperative production and use of materials produced for the benefit of students with disabilities. Participation in the AMX Database is based on reciprocity – educational institutions must agree to the “terms of use” before using the system. The AMX Database is available to the California Community Colleges and other institutions of higher education within the United States.

The AMX Database is a resource provided and maintained by the High Tech Center Training Unit for the California Community Colleges. The High Tech Center Training Unit is a training and support facility for California community college faculty and staff wishing to acquire and improve skills related to assistive computer technology, alternate media creation, an Web accessibility.

The High Tech Center Training Unit is a grant-funded resource provided through the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office. The HTCTU provides assistance and support to 114 California community colleges and satellite centers.
