How Blind People Read Books

by Donna J. Jodhan

When it comes to blind people being able to read books, we do it in several different ways. Here are a few examples:

  • We can read it in Braille,
  • We can listen to it on CD, cassette, or digital cartrage,
  • We can use our computers to download books and listen to them using special access technology called screen readers,
  • We use specially developed book readers to read books that have been formatted into DAISY formats,
  • We can also use scanners to scan books and listen to them from our computers.

A lot has been done, and continues to be done, when it comes to making books more accessible to blind people.
