Wisconsin Accessible Media Productions (WAMP)

The WAMP website has been designed to assist the local districts in obtaining accessible education materials in specialized formats.

If a school district is planning to purchase textbooks (published on or after July 19, 2006) they must request the publisher release the files to the NIMAC.

Textbook purchasing contracts contain language requesting the publisher prepare and submit files meeting NIMAS (National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard) requirements to the NIMAC. See Department of Public Instruction (DPI) Information Update Bulletin #07.03 for suggested language.
