How Blind People Read Books
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.
