Well surely that is their fault not yours, Over here in the UK reasonable adjustments would cover making stuff at least readable in the equality act. Its not a lot to ask these days.

Most of the pdf files are okay. Though I did have to tell NVDA to stop saying clickable. But the textbook on blackboard are scanned and well… not fun.

Pdf is not to bad unless its a scanned image most of pdfs are ok.

If its not there are ways to get it, if you can email that pdf to yourself in gmail, you can click the view as html and it will do so and you can save that I think.

It won't be tabled just a single column of text but it can be done.

I don't love pdf, but when my professors ship powerpoint, I'm usually in a hurry for the information. So, I open the powerpoint and thump it to pdf using powerpoint's save as feature. Then I get a heading structure and access to tables.
