Finding accessible textbooks shouldn’t be hard, so we make it easy.
At APH, we’re driven to make sure students with visual impairments are able to receive their accessible textbooks as quickly as possible.
How to find braille, large-print, and digital textbooks.
For accessible textbooks, we offer a variety of options.
Search the Louis Database. If you find your textbook, place your order with APH or another vendor. If not, see step 2.
Search the National Instructional Materials Access Center (NIMAC) to see if a NIMAS file is available. If the file is available, assign it to APH as your Accessible Media Producer.
If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, just fill out this handy APH textbook order request form.
Get braille books fast.
APH offers BrailleBlaster: revolutionary software that lets you turn your text to braille. If you need a textbook right now, this free program will help you transcribe using the NIMAC files. It’s quick, easy, and accurate, ensuring your children are ready for the first day of class.
