Welcome to the LAVC New Student Orientation


The orientation program is built using Flash, but this won't prevent you from using your tablet to view the presentation. You can visit either Google Play (Android) or the Apple App Store (iOS) and download a cloud-based browser; such as Puffin. This browser is free and will allow you to access any Flash-based web content on your mobile device.


After selecting the accessible version option, you need to turn your screen reader off. There are built in accessibility functions within the orientation program that conflict with screen reader commands. If you do not turn off your screen reader, the built-in accessible features will not work properly.
