We are a charity dedicated to helping those people who want to read but can’t use printed books. It may be that the print is too small or that turning pages is not practical – whatever the reason, we can help!
If making reading easy, accessible and pleasurable for everyone appeals to you, we’re always looking for volunteers to help us help us achieve our aims using their own computer at home.
This year we have a creative writing competition for adults as well as children! Deadline 5 December 2016.
Choose the books you want - we do the rest! Become a School Librarian and get your free books. But hurry - not many places left.
"Seeing Ear combines my love of literature with a desire to improve my IT skills - a great opportunity"
"Seeing Ear is a fantastic charity to volunteer for because it promotes literacy for everyone"
"Being a remote volunteer is perfect for me as a student, with varying workloads/location the flexibility is great!"
"It makes me feel happy and valuable whilst learning new things - I guess that’s what volunteering is all about"
"I find spending time in the evening reading and formatting the books an enjoyable way to unwind"
"As an educational and coaching consultant I am especially pleased to be involved"
"I like to feel I'm doing something worthwhile despite retirement - and I don't even have to leave the house!"
"I really enjoy my time with such a 'Happy Team' here in Battle which makes it even more rewarding"
"I feel it's a privilege to lend a hand to such a worthwhile cause, and one that I feel passionately about"
"I absolutely love this work - enriching others’ lives really does enrich your own life!"
"My favourite book I've worked on was 'The 2 1/2 Pillars of Wisdom' which had me crying with laughter!"
"I starting volunteering because I wanted to help people share in the same world of books and stories that I enjoy"
"It's a great sense of satisfaction knowing I'm doing something useful and that someone may benefit from it"
I can’t think of any other novels that have moved me as much as ‘The Book Thief’ and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
