Bookshare

Overview
Bookshare is an online accessible digital library for people with disabilities that affect the reading of print, such as blindness, vision impairment, dyslexia and certain physical disabilities.
In order to become a Bookshare member, an expert must confirm that you have a print disability that prevents you from reading traditional print materials.  Anyone in the world with a qualifying print disability may join Bookshare.

People with hearing loss, autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or emotional or intellectually disabilities or whose first language is not English generally do not qualify based on those criteria unless they also have a qualifying vision, physical, or learning disability.
