Bookshare helps San Jose, Calif., students with disabilities learn

from San Jose Mercury News

Gobbler the Belch is talking, and 9-year-old Justin Wagner is all ears. Thanks to the revolutionary program Bookshare, Justin actually hears Gobbler yell — or at least utter in a measured monotone — "Pay attention!" to Dogsbreath the Duhbrain on his classroom iPad at Toyon Elementary School. Since its debut in 2002, Bookshare has transformed not only reading but schooling for students with various disabilities. The program, an initiative of the Palo Alto-based nonprofit Benetech, produces an online library of accessible books for those visually or severely physically disabled or with learning disabilities like dyslexia. more
