Alternative Formats

People who are blind or who have other disabilities that make it difficult to read conventional print have access to thousands of books and other materials in alternative formats — such as braille, audiotape, and large print — through specialized libraries throughout the world. Many of these libraries are also beginning to provide books in electronic text formats, such as CDs that can be read on a computer or other electronic device with a screen reader. In addition, readers with adapted computers can take advantage of the thousands of electronic texts that are available right here on the Internet!
