Webinar Survey

All About Digital Books

This webinar was held 7/16/2009

This workshop was designed to help parents and professionals sort through an increasing number of options for accessing digital books for students with print-related disabilities. Even if participants had minimal experience with computers and the Internet, they learned how to find and use digital books in formats that learners can use.

Topics included:
  • What are digital books? In what formats are they available?
  • Why are digital books important for students with disabilities?
  • Where can I obtain digital books for my student?
  • What software and hardware are needed to access digital books?
  • Can schools provide digital textbooks?
  • How do copyright laws affect students with print disabilities?

Participants learned about several online resources, software programs, and devices that can be used to access and customize digital books to meet the needs of students with print disabilities.
