Alternate Text Production Center

Welcome to the website of the Alternate Text Production Center (ATPC) of the California Community Colleges. The ATPC is the first publicly funded, system-wide resource dedicated to serving the alternate media needs of the largest post-secondary educational system in the world. There are 112 community colleges in California and each of them has equal access to the media services provided by the ATPC.

  • Electronic Text files
  • Electronic Braille files
  • Braille books and documents
  • Tactile Graphics

The ATPC uses state-of-the-art technologies to fulfill its mission of support to the California Community College system. If you have questions or comments related to the ATPC, please contact the ATPC staff by the telephone or e-mail info listed below.
