This paper provides information about the standards that govern accessibility of learning objects, presents an example of an accessible learning object and shows the procedure to operate the Moodle learning platform which has been adapted by the authors to the preferences and needs of the students. The way to operate the Moodle adapted platform takes place in three phases. In the first phase, the platform asks the students and stores in their profile their sensory preferences to access the information. In the second stage the content authors or teachers are provided with the possibility to upload adapted learning objects to the platform. In the third stage, it searches for adapted learning objects that best suit the needs and preferences of the students, showing them how to view and use.
