That is a possibility, but the trouble with Robobraille is that 
it strips out page numbers making the book useless for academic 
purposes.

Hi Aimee. I have read Kindle books on my IPhone with a braille
display, and it works well. Pdf's can be accessible if you ocr 
them
with a program like Kurzweil, OpenBook, or DocuScan Plus. If you 
don't
have any of these programs, you can use robobraille.org and get 
the
file converted for free. As far as books are concerned, I like
Bookshare and IBooks better, but Kindle will certainly do the 
job.

 Hello group. I hope you guys are enjoying the last little bit of 
break
 before you dive into the fall semester.

 I'm having difficulty in getting accessible versions of books. 
PDF
 apparently isn't what the NFB considers accessible. Daisy and 
EPUB three
 are the formats  they consider to be accessible.

 I ran across a book on kindle that I think could work.  Has 
anyone had
 success with the kindle PC software?
