Welcome

We are a charity dedicated to helping people who want to read but who cannot use ordinary books. It may be that the print is too small, or turning pages is too difficult – whatever the reason, we can help!

How our files can be usedOur online library provides books a flexible format that can be downloaded by library members. You can join for free if you are eligible.

We have been offering services to print-disabled people since 2005 and are constantly updating and improving what we do. You can find out more about us and help us achieve our aims of making reading easy, accessible and enjoyable for people who are print-disabled.


How we prepare filesThe flexible format of the books in our library makes them suitable for use with many kinds of assistive technology, including electronic Braille readers and text-to-speech converters. Alternatively the books are easily adapted for reading onscreen in the format you prefer.

We have a team of volunteers constantly adding new books to the library by scanning originals, converting the scans to Microsoft Word format, and using Word styles to structure documents before they are uploaded to our library.

The way we style documents makes our books easy to navigate and straightforward to customise to the way you like to read.
