Top 1,000 titles research: checking of accessible formats


LISU was commissioned by the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) to investigate how many of the most popular 1,000 books in 2009 were accessible to those with visual impairment. Each book in the list was checked to see if it was available as an unabridged audio recording, in Braille, or as a large print edition. Both commercial and charitable provision will be included in the research. The work was repeated for the top 1,000 titles of 2010, including accessible e-books, and again for 2011 and 2012.
