Social Inclusion

We believe that access to information is a universal human right. Yet more than ninety percent of books and published materials cannot be read by people with disabilities. Our work in Social Inclusion is focused on one big thing: making information accessible so that everyone can learn, work, socialize, and pursue their dreams. See our social inclusion work in action.

Millions of people around the world face exclusion because of disabilities. Students with dyslexia struggle in school because they cannot read traditional books. Blind adults cannot access printed career development materials, build new skills, or gain meaningful employment. Older adults with macular degeneration can no longer enjoy their local newspaper or beloved New York Times bestsellers.

We are changing this. Through innovative education software and services, we are transforming how people with disabilities access information and publishing industry creates content so that it is accessible to all.

“Accessible ebooks help increase opportunities for individuals with disabilities to learn how to become professors, musicians, and even a radio host like me – or any career you can imagine.” —Robert Lewis, Executive Director, Maryland’s Radio Reading Network
