Books For The Impaired And Disabled

Mark Luljak has written to draw attention to the services of Bookshare.org, who make books accessible in special formats for the visually disabled -- including, he tells me, some amazing screen-reading voice software.

From the site's introduction:

Bookshare.org dramatically increases access to books for the community of visually impaired and otherwise print disabled individuals. This online community enables book scans to be shared, thereby leveraging the collections of thousands of individuals who regularly scan books, eliminating significant duplication of effort. Bookshare.org takes advantage of a special exemption in the U.S. copyright law that permits the reproduction of publications into specialized formats for the disabled.

Fifteen JPH titles are included in the collection.

Edited 09-Oct-2005 by JPH site administrators.
