Excellent accessibility testing of EPUB reading Apps can be found at:

Based on this testing a summary review of recommended Apps can be found on the InclusivePublishing.org website at:

Many of the Reading Apps support side loading, but not all.

Joseph is correct about EasyReader by Dolphin.
Also, Edge now natively supports reading of EPUB, and they plan to fix some of the bugs we reported.

Feel free to contact me with any questions, or if anybody needs help getting started.

HI Robert:

We would recommend Dolphin Easy Reader <https://yourdolphin.com/product?id=23> . You can read an accessibility evaluation (with a focus on low vision users) of Dolphin Easy Reader at this site: Dolphin Easy Reader Evaluation <http://epubtest.org/evaluation/459/> .

Some of the features that I like are:

- Free
- active development
- access to multiple libraries (e.g., Bookshare, NFB, EPUB Books)
- support with VoiceOver
- Page number support
- Built in Text to Speech, including Pitch, Pause, and Pronunciation settings
- MathML support
- Multiple Formats: TXT, DOCX, HTML, EPUB, DAISY 2, DAISY 3

Hello all, since I have not found a way to convert an epub to PDF, what is a good Epub reader? This is for a student with a learning disability, not someone who is blind. That being said however I myself would appreciate it if the suggested reader were accessible.
