Using the Accessibility Toggle

If you would like assistance in using the eBook Reader, then the Accessibility Mode is a great help. Accessibility Mode gives new options to students who require accessibility options to make it easier to read an eBook.

Accessibility Mode allows you to navigate the eBook Reader and its tools with your keyboard. It also ensures that the eBook Reader and its tools can be used with a screen reader.

The best way to hear an eBook text aloud is to use the “Play” and “Pause” tools within the eReader header, rather than use your screen reader.
