Free Trial of EasyReader Premium Now Available for Educators
Dolphin is excited to announce the launch of EasyReader Premium. Exclusively available as a free trial for educators in the UK, USA and Canada, EasyReader Premium provides extra functionality in the EasyReader App to make reading and learning even more accessible.
EasyReader Premium has new features that enable students who are blind, partially sighted or have a neurodiverse condition – such as dyslexia – to read and learn on any device, with accessible books and reading preferences sychronised.
Read and learn anywhere with EasyReader Premium
The free EasyReader App provides direct access to the world’s largest collection of accessible book and newspaper services. With EasyReader Premium, students who are blind, partially sighted or have dyslexia can now log in and access additional, synchronised features.
Students can read and study the same books across any iOS, Android, Kindle Fire or Windows device when they sign in to EasyReader with a Premium account. Their customised views, audio settings and book information are all synchronised for a seamless reading experience.
EasyReader Premium enables students to read anywhere and learn anywhere. They can sign in to EasyReader on a laptop at school, a PC at home and a smartphone or tablet when they’re travelling to access the same books, accessible features, settings and information and start reading where they left off. It’s useful if your students move around a campus to study or need to use a different device in each class.
“With EasyReader Premium, educators can further support students who are blind, partially sighted or dyslexic, with more accessible ways to read and study.
EasyReader Premium enables students to pick up any device and continue reading their accessible books where they left off. We removed the need to sign into libraries again, browse the same books on different devices and adjust reading settings each time. EasyReader Premium works seamlessly to make studying easier.”
Steve Bennett, MD at Dolphin Computer Access
A seamless and accessible reading experience for students
Once students are signed in to EasyReader with their Premium account on any device, they can pick up where they left off, for a continuous learning and reading experience. EasyReader Premium synchronises:
- Book downloads

Deliver an inclusive reading service for your students
Designed with education in mind, EasyReader Premium enables students who are blind or partially sighted, and students with neurodiverse conditions such as dyslexia, to read books in ways that suit their sight and their reading preferences.
With EasyReader Premium, schools, colleges and university personnel can create student accounts on the Dolphin website. With options to add multiple students, or to add one-by-one, it’s simple to set up accounts. You can then share the account information with your eligible students so they can log in and benefit from an accessible reading experience. EasyReader Premium ensures students that benefit from accessible resources and accommodations can access learning material easily, so they can thrive in class
EasyReader Premium is particularly helpful for SENCO staff, Disability Support Services and pastoral care teams, in addition to teaching staff.

Designed for readers with visual impairments or neurodiverse conditions such as dyslexia, EasyReader Premium can be used on a range of devices. If students have a smartphone or tablet, they can read to learn, and for pleasure wherever they go.
EasyReader Premium enables students who are blind, partially sighted or have another print impairment, to fully customise their reading experience.
