There is a new free app for Bookshare called Go Read. This app reads Bookshare books on Android devices. It’s great for users to have more options for ways they can access Bookshare books.
Any reader with an individual or institutional Bookshare membership can use Go Read to download content, which includes popular fiction, nonfiction, and educational titles. Those with documented disabilities can join Bookshare for free. The Walled Lake Consolidated School District, where I work, has an institutional membership for Bookshare; Special Services teachers can assist students who qualify use Bookshare, or parents can apply for an individual membership.
Unlike Read2Go, which costs $19.99 for the Apple iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch, Go Read is a free open-source app. Users can suggest improvements on the Go Read forum and let others know that they can contribute to the future development of the app. Download Go Read here!
