but not all ibooks are in libraries we need. Besides, I thought you had to
pay for those.
True epub is accessible, but do we know that epsco books use epub? I did not
think so, but I could be mistaken. When I opened them with sighted help, it
appeared to be flash content and some books were pictures of a book.
I do not use an IOS device unless I borrow one, but I suppose if Chris pays
for an ibook, this could be an option.

Try VO with iBooks. My understanding is that ePub are inherently accessible
(they are basically a group of zipped HTML files). So any inaccessibility
comes from the program being used to access them.
