Five star rating"Fully accessible and easy to use" Shadow Hunter 77  iOS

This is a really good app. I'm completely blind and use VoiceOver on my iPhone and iPad. Not only is this app free, it's fully accessible with VoiceOver and easy to use. It gives you access to a ridiculous number of free Ebooks as well as enabling you to read newspapers and magazines that are in Epub format. Great.

This is the best reading app I have found that supports a range of voices and libraries. I have it on both my ipad and iphone and it is a pleasure to read books with.

 

Five star ratingA great customizable app" Norberto Feliberty Jr. Android

“This is a great customizable app that lets people who are visually impaired read books from a variety of organizations that offer accessible material for the visually impaired and who's disability otherwise affects their ability to read standard books.”
