The need for information in accessible formats is increasing for those who have
disabilities related to vision, cognition, and mobility. This session will
give participants a hands-on introduction to some different ways of offering books
in accessible audio and e-book formats for a wide variety of readers, including those
with print disabilities. The room will be set up with 6 stations, each with its own
guide, to let participants learn about how to read books with commonly-used tools
such as computers, smartphones or tablets, and DAISY players.
