None of the book apps I've tried on the iPhone are truely accessible. One
can getsome things out of apps like Stanza but not entirely. The interface
is awkward and buttons and other elements remain unlabelled. Kurzweil NFB
Tech is scheduled to release an iPhone app at the end of next month that
will provide access to epub, PDf and other content. I have no information
about this than a recent Publisher's weekly story.

Subject: [Athen] book applications on the iPhone

I've emailed one person on this group about this separately, but wanted to
ask everyone else, has anyone come across a visually impaired person being
able to use any of the book applications available for the iPhone? I'm
thinking of things like the death of Bunny Munro and some Oxford University
Press ones.
