New eBook tools benefit U.S. students with print disabilities

Bookshare, (, the online library, has released two new tools to help its members and sponsors organize and read ebooks.  

Web Reader will help Bookshare members directly open and read books with a browser, without requiring them to download the book or utilize separate software.  

The Bookshelf will help members and sponsors, such as U.S. educators, organize reading, including K-12 NIMAC textbooks and required reading assignments. Bookshare is a Benetech literacy solution, funded by awards from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). 

More than 73,000 educators use the Bookshare library to support students who are blind, have low vision, a physical disability, such as cerebral palsy or a severe reading disability, such as dyslexia with accessible books and reading technologies to improve learning equality and reading independence.
