Read our learners stories. We are hearing from learners that there is a big difference in their education, learners are getting the titles they need.

Where learners have their own access to RNIB Bookshare through their school they are getting to download a choice of curriculum reading and also leisure reading, leading to greater independence! Great news.

Learner's feedback

"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

A happy parent

Held back by his lack of access

Her son is taking his GCSE’s (summer 2018); and is 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)

A partially sighted student studying at university

RNIB's best kept secret!

Writing her last essay, Grace said that she struggled with her assignments as she had access to only 1 textbook, whilst other students averaged 5 textbooks.

She was told about RNIB Bookshare by RNIB’s wonderful Resource Centre in Judd Street and 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)
