Book for print disabled



Less than 5% of all print publications are available to people with learning and print disabilities that prevent them from reading traditional printed material. The only way these individuals can read most publications is to acquire audio texts or to manually scan publications and convert the text into digitized speech or Braille – an expensive and time consuming process. This presents a significant barrier to reading and access to information for people with print disabilities.
