Are you a blind or low vision reader who has struggled to find talking books?

Bookshare can help.

Bookshare is an online library of talking books for blind and low vision readers.

With a Bookshare membership you can:

  • Listen to words read aloud
  • Read on a wide variety of devices such as computers, tablets, smartphones, MP3 players, and assistive technology devices
  • Get unlimited access to school books, popular books, children’s books, and more
  • Request a book if it is not in the library

Bookshare is free for U.S. students with a qualifying disability.

Our Mission

We believe that access to information is a universal human right. Yet more than ninety percent of books and published materials cannot be read by people with disabilities. Our work is focused on making reading accessible to everyone around the world.

Bookshare is an initiative of Benetech, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan organization.
