Een beperking levert tegenwoordig gelukkig niet zo'n groot probleem als vroeger. De tijd dat een blinde een gedateerd tijdschrift of studiemateriaal 'las', omdat het eerst moest worden omgezet in braille of audio, ligt gelukkig ver achter ons.

An individual with a physically-based disability that makes it difficult or impossible to read a printed book likely will qualify for Bookshare® services. Organizations (schools, libraries, and rehabilitation and social services agencies) can also obtain Bookshare services to support their efforts to meet the reading needs of people with these disabilities. The individual signing up for our services, or the organization serving that individual, will be asked to provide Bookshare with a Proof of Disability (certified by someone who is a Competent Authority as described below) during the registration process. As explained in more detail below, the Qualifications to enroll in and use Bookshare services are based on an exception contained in Section 121 of U.S. Copyright law, commonly known as the Chafee Amendment. These qualifications are not set by Bookshare itself - we have to comply with the law that makes Bookshare possible as a qualified provider of these copyrighted materials.
