Benetech future work on accessible books

Beneblog: Technology Meets Society: President's Update: Summer 2008
Jim Fruchterman, from Benetech of Bookshare.org, hints at future work with Bookshare.org to make it more accessible to students with existing laptops, mp3 players or phones. Back in September, Bookshare.org received a $32 million award from Department of Education, to provide free accessible books to all students with qualifying disabilities. It will be interesting to see what develops for reading from this work and how it will benefit people with disabilities such as dyslexia, blindness/low vision, and fine/gross motor disabilities.
