Please note: EasyReader App for Mac is only available to:

EasyReader offers convenient access to your favourite accessible book libraries and talking newspaper stands, in one place.
Neurodivergent readers – especially readers who have dyslexia – can customise their reading experience with dyslexia-friendly fonts, adjustable colour schemes and word highlights that synchronise with audio.
Designed for accessibility, EasyReader enables blind and partially sighted readers to read with magnified text, audio, or a combination of both - where each word is highlighted on screen as it’s read aloud. It also links to braille displays for braille readers.
EasyReader is compatible with VoiceOver and supported braille displays.

EasyReader App Features
Open a World of Accessible Books
EasyReader provides global access to millions of books from accessible book libraries around the world. Log in to your favourite library to read accessible versions of classic books, the latest bestsellers, non-fiction, school textbooks and children’s storybooks.

Customise to Read Your Way
Text magnification in EasyReader is easy to adjust. Simply pinch in and out on the screen to find the text size that’s best for you. With EasyReader the text is always sharp and visible on screen. It’s an exceptional experience for readers with visual impairments.

Read in fonts that work best for you, including dyslexia-friendly fonts. In EasyReader you can customise the colour of text, background colour and contrast. Adjust letter and line spacing to make your reading experience even better.

Audio Books & Text-to-Audio
Listen to narrated audiobooks or listen to text-only books and newspapers, which EasyReader converts to human-sounding synthesised speech. Audio perfectly synchronises with on-screen text highlights, so you can read along as you listen.

In EasyReader, you can modify pronunciation, choose the reading voices you prefer and adjust reading speed and volume.
Read a Range of Formats
EasyReader reads a wide range of book and document formats, including:

• Text files
• DAISY 2 and DAISY 3
• Microsoft Word (DOCX only)
• PDFs (with RNIB Bookshare)
• Any text copied to clipboard

Easy to Navigate
Access your favourite libraries, then browse and download books easily, with intuitive navigation and accessible controls.
In EasyReader you can move around books quickly. Skip forward or back when reading and skip to any page or chapter.
Type keywords in the search facility to quickly find the information you need.

Add Bookmarks & Notes
To help navigate books, readers can bookmark favourite pages and sections. To aid study, readers can also add text notes.
