We operate an online library that develops, produces, and distributes digitally accessible educational materials (AEMs) for students who face difficulty reading regular textbooks and other books due to disabilities. We also provide Application Programming Interafces for AEM data access for third-party developers, and operate a data management platform that develops, produces, and distributes digital data to speed up and facilitate the production of AEMs in a variety of data formats by mediating between publishers and volunteer groups that produce AEMs nationwide.
This figure displays an AEM that can be read aloud using a third-party application that supports our online library's API.
