National Accessible Library

The National Accessible Library is a free online library for visually impaired readers. Both schools, children and young people with vision impairment and parents can join the library.

The library is for people who are unable to enjoy reading a printed book because they are blind, visually impaired, have print blindness due to dyslexia or are physically impaired.

The books are available in a variety of formats, including Microsoft Word, plain text and Braille. The books in Microsoft Word format are marked up in order to make it as easy as possible to customise the book to suit the way you want to read them. The charity continues to add books to the library all the time, on every subject. Click the link to the library http://www.accessiblelibrary.org.uk/

If the book is in Microsoft Word format, you can press control A to highlight all the text and change the text size if needed.
