# Lessons

• The MS Word version of each lesson handout is the best for people with visual impairments. The Microsoft Word “Read Out Loud” feature provides the most correct reading of mathematics.
• The PDF version is best for printing. It has the cleanest format. It is not fully ADA compliant, so please be careful.
