Accessible Materials

The Toastmasters Pathways learning experience is open to all members, including those with disabilities. Regardless of format, whether it’s Base Camp or accessible materials, the content of Pathways is the same. Accessible educational materials are available to members who are blind or rely on assistive technology, such as a screen reader.

All learning paths are available in an accessible format in English. While English is the only language offered today, translation into other languages is ongoing.

If you have not yet joined a club, indicate your interest in accessible materials on your membership application form. If you are a current Toastmaster, you can request accessible materials by contacting Toastmasters International. New and current members who ask for these items will receive an email with instructions for starting in Pathways.

You have two options for ordering your path. You may take the Pathways Assessment online or pick your path on your own. Although the assessment is not accessible to using assistive technology, you can still take it with the assistance of a sighted guide. Alternatively, you may use an accessible version of the Navigator and all path and project descriptions to choose your path, then place your order directly with Toastmasters International.

After you select your path, you will receive the following materials via email within one business day:

  • All required and elective projects for the path, formatted as HTML documents
  • Links to educational videos included in projects, plus transcripts formatted in HTML
  • All Pathways evaluation resources, formatted as Microsoft Word forms with space for adding notes
  • All resource documents for the path, formatted as Microsoft Word forms with space for adding notes
  • A form to give the VPE when you complete a level
  • Instructions for using the accessible educational materials

You are not required to log on to Base Camp at any point in your journey.

All English educational Pathways videos on Base Camp include optional closed captions. Members can turn on the captions with the click of a button as they read through their projects. Additionally, members may download and read video transcripts from Base Camp.
