Electronic Books

  • Ebrary: Download the ebrary Reader from the ebrary database to activate text-to-speech capabilities. You can also activate the database's "accessibility mode" (designed for use with screen readers) by clicking on My Settings and ticking the checkbox for "Display pages in accessibility mode".

Electronic Journal Article Databases
Geisel Library subscribes to a number of journal article databases. The following databases have text-to-speech technology available for HTML full text documents without the use of additional software.

Full text articles are available through other databases in either HTML or PDF format. HTML and PDF full text documents will work with screen reader software. For help in setting up your Adobe Reader to work with your Screen Reader software see Adobe's Screen Reader User's Guide.
