A tip for your Learning and Disability Services Program:


If you are currently relying on readers or staff to read aloud textbooks and academic material on audio tapes to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for your students, you may be spending more money than necessary. Book*Scan*Talk quickly provides equal access to most books and course materials while reducing overall expenses.  (See how we compare.)

* The textbooks' bindings are removed for the scanning process.  The textbooks can be spiral-bound when returned to the college/student. The books (usually) remain fully functional after scanning. However, most bookstores will not buy the used books back after they have been scanned and rebound.  Resourceful students have sold their used (scanned) books to other students through campus bulletin boards.

** Most text-to-speech (TTS) engines cannot interpret text conversion of technical symbols (i.e., math and sciences) or foreign languages. Book*Scan*Talk is not prepared to convert these types of textbooks because we cannot economically accomplish that type of text conversion.
