If you are looking for text books, you may have better luck on Vital Source. If you are looking for more leisure titles, you are likely going to have better luck via Apple's iBooks. Google Play books has some problems with Braille in the current version, and unfortunately, I don't think I've heard of a work around.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can have the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

Make a gift to the National Federation of the Blind and help ensure all blind Americans live the lives they want.

Subject: [nabs-l] Google Play Books

Hi All,
I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the IPhone app Google Play Books, and how much luck they have had with it.  I have a few books not available on  Bookshare which I potentially use Google Play Books for.  I would be using it with my phone paired with my Apex.  The problem is that when I open up the book, every single word is on its own line, which is obviously a hassle to scroll down.
Has anyone had this problem or know if there is a way to fix this?
