Access to Books/Print

Books and other print documents can be difficult to manage for those who are print impaired (blind or low literacy) but can also be an issue for those who cannot hold books to read them.  

Fortunately, mass-market books are often available in other formats, or can be made accessible, to allow access by those with physical, sensory, or cognitive limitations.

  • Tools can provide access to print documents by making them electronic, and modifying the content for enhanced access.
  • Many books are available as electronic books, and can be read through accessible ebook readers
  • Some, but not all, books are available in a special format called Daisy, which preserves much of the information, such as page numbers and index entries, of the printed version.
