Bookshare is a free, online, searchable library of electronic texts that is available to students with visual, physical, or learning disabilities that prevent them from accessing print. Once students are registered on Bookshare, they can download books, newspapers, and textbooks. They can then access these texts by: using software that reads the book aloud (text-to-speech); listening to an mp3 of the text; displaying the text on a computer screen in a useable size, color or contrast; or reading the text in Braille using a Braille reader.

Access Bookshare with your iPad/iPhone using the Read2Go app, or on your Android device using GoRead.

Find Bookshare handouts and resources on my Kent ISD website: within the Reading resources.
