Rebecca has been continuing her Herculean task of checking, adapting and uploading books (kindly provided by VTSS in Edinburgh) to the Books for All Scotland Database. The latest batch are 83 books for English, including novels such as Charlotte's Web and Ezio Trot, books from reading schemes such as Wellington Square and Oxford Reading Tree, and English textbooks from Collins. Most of the books are Large Print which are particularly suited for pupils with visual impairment or reading difficulties to read on iPads or tablets with smaller screens, because the large font and simplified layout means there is less need to swipe and scroll around the screen.

The screen shot shows a Large Print 24 point version of Charlotte's Web being read out using the free Scottish Heather voice that is now available on ClaroPDF, one of our favourite apps for accessing PDF files on the iPad.  

The new books are listed on the Home page when you go to the Database.
