Hi All

I just want to throw out one more suggestion. The Chrome Web App Readium works fairly well with screen readers.

Thanks. I finally got the Reading Tools toolbar to show in Edge but it keeps disappearing up under the Address Bar and I have to refresh the screen in order to make it visible again, then quickly find the mouse and click on it in order to keep it visible.

Am finding reading EPUB as challenging as reading PDF. ☺

Cheers, Karen

Most of our students that need this are savvy enough to use a Mac and iOS with VoiceOver. To that, they use iBooks as it works with
Also, for students in our office, we offer access to Kurzweil 3000/Firefly which also has built in EPUB support.

It’s been a long time since I taught how to create Daisy books and knew what readers were accessible.

I’m taking a look at EPUB and I’ve created a book from one of my tutorials. I now want to read it, but didn’t want to use the Calibre viewer/the app I used to create the book as I want to see how it reads in another viewer.

Any suggestions on a free but good EPUB reader that is accessible? What are students and faculty using?

Cheers, Karen
