We have scanned and uploaded most of the Higher Scottish set texts to the Books for All Database and so they are now available for any of your learners who have print disabilities. The books are PDF files so they can be read on almost any device - Windows or Mac computers, iPads, Android tablets etc. They have been scanned from paper originals and converted to readable text using an automatic optical character recognition process, so there may be some errors in the text, but they look pretty accurate to me. Together with the digital versions of the set texts for National 5 we uploaded in July, these files should help learners get to grips with this session's English courses.

I've also searched for commerical eBook versions of the set texts, and the table below gives you links to both the eBook and scanned books on the Database.

The Books for All web site has quick guides on reading PDFs, and there are also some video guides.
