Ebook Central is designed for patrons with accessibility needs, particularly the blind and visually impaired. Some examples of the work that Ebook Central has done in this area include:
In addition, researchers can now change the font for the Ebook Central interface to OpenDyslexic, an open-source typeface designed to combat symptoms of dyslexia, directly from the Profile page through Ebook Central.
Patrons using a screen reader may turn on Accessibility Mode themselves. For patrons who don’t use a screen reader but have accessibility needs, Accessibility Mode can be requested for their account at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also feel free to contact the Library with questions regarding resource accessibility.
Accessibility Mode controls can be adjusted through your Profile. Select "Profile" under "Settings," then adjust the accessibility settings.
