The master textbook list, with alternate formats and accessible options

List of  Alterative Formats and Accessible Options for Textbooks for All DBH Courses

While every attempt is made to keep this list accurate and up to date, the CORE Library does not guarantee the accuracy of information or that a particular format of a book will have the features desired or that it will work with your technology.  Always speak with the book publisher or seller first.

 


Depending upon the need, an alternate format or accessible characteristics may be present in the textbooks required for the DBH program.  Options can include the following:

Option Details
CORE Library Databases and eBooks

The CORE Library's ebook and database vendor is Ebsco.  

  • Database articles may include a Readspeaker option, which will read the article out loud.  You may also download an .mp3 of the article to play in another device.

  • eBooks do not have native text-to-speech functions.  However, you may download PDFs of the books.  Depending upon publisher restrictions, this can be individual chapters or as much as 100 pages at a time.  From there, you can use a PDF to speech app to convert the text to speech. 

Amazon Kindle
VitalSource VitalSource is a seller of electronic textbooks.  Many textbook publishers offer a VitalSource version of the book, available via the VitalSource Bookshelf app (iOS, Android, Mac, PC, Chromebook, Kindle Fire).  Depending upon the platform, Bookshelf may offer a Read Aloud feature that has text to speech built in (iOS) (Android, Kindle Fire).
Apps

A popular option is NaturalReader Text to Speech , which can read a PDF out loud.  Simply search for "PDF to speech app" and a number of possibilities will come up.

The Learning Disabilities Association of America lists Prizmo as an option for iPhone and iPad users.  The app lets you take a picture of what you want to read and then it reads it out loud to you. 

Georgia Tech's Tools for Life App Finder can help you to locate other ideas about assistive technology that may be helpful.
