Individuals with print disabilities can now choose new, low-cost mobile technologies to read more than 50,000 digital books and periodicals due to a partnership between Bookshare, online library of accessible books for people, and Code Factory, provider of screen readers, screen magnifiers, and Braille interfaces for a wide range of mainstream mobile devices.

The Mobile Speak screen readers for mobile phones use synthesized speech to read aloud information displayed on the mobile phone screens, including ebooks stored on their phones. Using this technology, Bookshare members who are blind will have features like navigation, bookmarking and text search to access digital books for work, study or reading pleasure.
