Hi, Ellen,
I recently made a fairly sustained effort to find accessible books in French.  
I searched through the Library of Congress NLS website and found a couple.
A magazine in French can be downloaded from BARD.
Recordings for the Blind and Dyslexic has the largest collection of books in 
I'm going to look at the Bookshare books myself, but wonder how well the 
language works with synthesized speech.

  Hi group,


  This question might be more for Carrie or Scott, but I'll throw it out and 
see what I get. The head of the Disabled Student Services office at my alma 
mater just sent me a message asking me about the availability of accessible 
format books in French. I really had no idea, but mentioned Bookshare, as well 
as Project Gutenberg. At least the latter would most likely have the classics. 
So, I guess my question is, do we have books in French in our collection? If 
so, how many?
