Designed for students with learning differences, Bookshare lets students read in ways that work for them with over 1 Million ebooks in easy-to-read formats. Students can listen to words read aloud, follow along with highlighted text, read in large font or braille, and customize their reading experience. Bookshare is 100% FREE for all US students with qualifying disabilities and schools through funding from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education programs.
