Select your format based upon: 1) how you want to read your book, and 2) compatibility with your reading tool. To learn more about using Bookshare with your device, visit the Help Center.

Here is an overview of the specialized formats that Bookshare offers its members with links that go to the Help Center for more information.

  • Bookshare Web Reader - A customized reading tool for Bookshare members offering all the features of DAISY with a single click of the "Read Now" link.
  • DAISY (Digital Accessible Information System) - A digital book file format. DAISY books from Bookshare are DAISY 3.0 text files that work with just about every type of access technology that reads text. Books that contain images will have the download option of ‘DAISY Text with Images’.
  • BRF (Braille Refreshable Format) - Digital Braille for use with refreshable Braille devices and Braille embossers.
  • MP3 (MPEG audio layer 3) - Provides audio only with no text. These books are created with a text-to-speech engine and spoken by Kendra, a high quality synthetic voice from Ivona. Any device that supports MP3 playback is compatible.
  • DAISY Audio - Similar to the DAISY option above; however, this option uses MP3 files created with our text-to-speech engine that utilizes Ivonas Kendra voice. This format will work with Daisy Audio compatible players such as Victor Reader Stream and Read2Go.
  • EPUB - A standard e-book format that can be read on many tools, such as iBooks, Readium or others.
  • Word - Accessible Word output, which can be unzipped and opened in any tool that allows .docx files

Climate Graph - Cool, temperate maritime: Shannon, Ireland (Large Print)


This is a graph showing temperature and precipitation over the period of a year in Shannon. There is a locator dot shown, which will be at the top left of the page when the image is the right way up. There are vertical bars indicating average monthly rainfall and a thick dashed line going across the page showing the average monthly temperature. On the left of the page is a vertical scale marked in degrees Centigrade starting from zero at the bottom. It is marked at every five degrees and labelled at every ten degrees. Running right across the page are fine horizontal grid lines. The thick dashed line representing the temperature can be found at the bottom left of the page sloping up and down to right. Across the bottom of the page are twelve labelled vertical bars showing the rainfall for each month of the year, starting with January on the left. To allow sufficient space, the braille labels are uncapitalised. At the far right of the page is a vertical scale of precipitation in millimetres, starting with zero at the bottom. This is marked every 25 mm and labelled every 50 mm.

Congruency


This diagram consists of two pairs of congruent shapes; two triangles in the middle of the page and two irregular shapes at the bottom of the page. A locator dot and title are shown. These must always be at the top left of the page when the image is the right way up. The top two are congruent - the one on the right is in a mirrored position. The diagram shows how their congruency is proved. The bottom two are also congruent - the one on the right is in a rotated position. When shapes are congruent they are the same size and shape but can be rotated and/or mirrored.

Cross section of the left human lung (Large Print)


This diagram shows the left lung, its bronchus and part of the trachea seen from the front and surrounded by an image border. A locator dot and title are shown. These must always be at the top left of the page when the image is the right way up. In the top left of the diagram the lower part of the trachea runs down the page a short way, before dividing into the two bronchi. The left bronchus goes down and to the right of the page, and enters the left lung. It divides many times into bronchioles, each of which ends in an alveolus.

Development of a tropical storm - cross section (Large Print)


This page shows a tropical storm in cross section (cut through vertically and seen from the side). There is a locator dot shown, which will be at the top left of the page when the image is the right way up. The diagram has a dashed line image border. In the middle of the page there are arrows pointing down, and to either side of these the cross section through the clouds can be found. Going across the bottom of the page is a textured area representing the sea. The straight arrows in the middle of the page represent the flow of air down into the clear 'eye' of the storm system. To either side are textured areas of cloud. Within these textured areas, wiggly arrows show water vapour rising through the cloud from the sea. Rain is shown falling from the cloud to the sea at the bottom of the page. Three horizontal arrows, pointing right, can be found on the left of the page just above the sea. Three similar arrows, pointing left, can be found just above the sea on the right of the page. These all show airflow into the storm system.

Development of a tropical storm - map (Large Print)


This diagram shows the development of a tropical storm, in map view (seen from above). There is a locator dot shown, which will be at the top left of the page when the image is the right way up. The image is surrounded by an image border. Most of the border is filled with a texture representing the sea. To the left of the page are descriptive labels and to the right a textured object shaped roughly like a ring doughnut. At the bottom left of the page, just above a label, are two arrows pointing to the left, indicating the direction of travel of the storm system. The right hand portion of the page shows the ring-shaped storm system with the clear 'eye' at its centre. It is surrounded by arrows showing the anti-clockwise (in the northern hemisphere) rotational direction of the system.

Distance-time graph


This page shows a graph of distance plotted against time. There is a locator dot shown, which will be at the top left of the page when the image is the right way up. A background grid of light vertical and horizontal lines covers most of the page. To the far left is a vertical scale, the y-axis, which is marked in divisions of 50 metres going up the page from 0 to 400. At the bottom of the page is a horizontal scale, the x-axis, which is divided into intervals of ten seconds going from 0 on the left to 70 on the right of the page. There is a heavy line starting at the bottom left of the grid where zero is marked that slopes up to the right. It is horizontal between 30 and 50 seconds and then slopes up again. To the far right of the page is a vertical line showing distance travelled and below this, to the left, is a line showing time taken for this section of the graph line. Up and to the left of centre of the page there is the equation: speed = y/x. In the equation 'x' refers to the time (on the x-axis, going left to right) taken to travel a distance and 'y' (on the y-axis, going bottom to top) to the distance travelled in that time.
