"I just wanted to say thank you for all this as I feel almost overwhelmed with gratitude. I have benefited enormously from this provision already and it has removed the huge stress of being able to keep up with everything." Learner, 18 November 2019
Learner was held back by his lack of access
A mother told us that her son was taking his GCSE’s (summer 2018); and was predicted to get A’s across the board. She told us that the most significant impact on that process was his access to RNIB Bookshare on his iPad.
"RNIB Bookshare has been such a positive influence on him, he is bright, but was being held back by his access to the resources he needed." (June 2018)
Partially sighted university student with no books!
"RNIB's best kept secret!"
Writing her last essay, Grace said that she struggled with her assignments as she had access to only one textbook, whilst other students averaged five.
When she found out about RNIB Bookshare she quickly got her college to give her access. She has searched and browsed the site and has already found all the books she needs to study with and knows now how to request any that we haven’t got. She said that she is so happy! She told us that we are RNIB's best kept secret, which she would tell everyone about! (2018)
