Requesting accessible formats for print-disabled readers

We work with RNIB Bookshare to provide our book titles in accessible formats. If your library has already purchased a print or ebook version of an Elgar title RNIB Bookshare can provide you with a digital copy that can be read electronically or adapted to suit the personal reading needs of learners. 
The service enables learners who cannot read standard print, including those with dyslexia or sight loss, to read the same books at the same time as their peers, giving them the same educational opportunities.

Libraries should visit rnibbookshare.org to set up their account and start downloading resources. 
You can contact the RNIB Bookshare team by emailing [email protected] or calling 0300 3030 8313.
