"Read 'Em and Speak!"
Books and Reading from
a Blind Perspective

Electronic text offers blind and visually impaired individuals an unprecedented level of intellectual independence and autonomy. Therefore, these pages are devoted to books, as read by the blind and visually impaired. All of the sites and resources to which Read 'Em and Speak is linked are either intrinsically speech and braille-friendly, or have been extensively re-indexed locally so as to ensure easy and immediate access by the blind/VI cybernaut. If you know of any resources not listed here, please email Gregory J. Rosmaita.
