How do I use Bookshare Web Reader?

Individual and Student Members can read books using Web Reader.

  1. Using a computer or a Chromebook, open Google Chrome or Safari (Mac only) and log in to Bookshare.
  2. Use the search box at the top of the page to search for a book.
  3. Once you've found the book, select the "Read Now" link under the download options.
  4. When the book opens in your browser, select the Play button (the "speaker" icon) in the top right corner of Web Reader to start the audio.

If you are a Bookshare teacher or sponsor assisting a student or member to access Bookshare, you can share books with them across reading lists by Empowering your Members to Read, or Request an Individual membership for them. Or you can assist your students in reading Bookshare content though any one of our other Compatible Tools
