Hey doesn't that sound like an island or something. Smile. Actually a lot of LD and Visually Impaired people look at the screen while it reads to them. There are programs like K 3000 and "Read Please" that highlight the word as it is spoken. Actually speaking of making things easier to read. There is a free font that was researched and designed to be easier to read. You can download it at www.aph.org do a search for "Aphont" and it will pop up. You can bold it, italicize it, enlarge it, and do much more with it, and it is been researched and done focus groups and it is more easier and comfortable to read than more traditional fonts.

But if someone is sighted but is eligible due to another covered handicap, they're not gonna read the book off the screen, are they? If they could do that, they wouldn't need Bookshare, or would they? I would think that they would be listening to the book via a Daisy reader; and for them paragraphs and formatting would be rendered irrelevant. If I am failing to understand something, please enlighten me someone.
