The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) has partnered with publishing company Hachette UK to make all of its books available via the charity’s Bookshare platform.

The free service provides access to an online library of digital resources that can be read electronically or adapted to suit the reading needs of the user, including people who are blind, partially-sighted or have dyslexia.

As a result of the partnership, over 33,000 titles from the publisher are now available in accessible formats.

Director of services at RNIB, David Clarke, said: “We are delighted that Hachette has partnered with RNIB Bookshare as this service gives millions of people the opportunity to literally open up their education with access to materials that allow for an entirely independent learning experience.”
