About the College
About Pamlico Community College
Located in Grantsboro, North Carolina, Pamlico Community College began as an industrial education center in 1962. Since then PCC has grown to become a fully accredited two year community college with programs in varied disciplines in academic, continuing education, and cultural enrichment programs. A contract program with East Carolina University enables students in appropriate programs to transfer on for a four-year education.
Since its founding, tens of thousands of students have benefited from the individual, personalized attention the college provides to its students.
“We were trying to train faculty on how to create accessible documents, running through checks, and getting adjunct instructors on board.”
Instructors quickly learned to use YuJa Panorama to check accessibility and use it to create accessible documents. Students have learned that they can download course materials in a number of formats, from HTML, to electronic Braille, EPUB, audio (speech-to-text), high contrast, tagged PDF files, and more.
Using YuJa Panorama, Pamlico Community College has scanned more than 11,000 files. In addition, over 1,000 alternative formats have been downloaded. In the first quarter of 2023, the institution increased its overall accessibility by 6% over the previous quarter.
