Big thanks to BrightRED who have supplied us with digital versions of their Study Guides. Thanks once more to Marie Lawson in Shetland who has contributed New Maths in Action 32 in 18 point Large Print. This adds to Large Print versions of 11, 12, 21, 22 and 31 books that Marie has already provided to the database. Lots of new books – all English Books, All PDFs, mostly large print. Can I Stand On Your Head? The first batch of English books from VTSS Edinburgh are now available.
Most of them are Large Print versions, and many are available as both Word Docs and PDFs. There are a few scanned books in here too. At Home with Science: Dig and Sow! We’ve uploaded a new batch of VTSS files – these are a mix of scanned and Large Print. Just before Christmas Mary Matson from Edinburgh and Lothians VTSS transcription team kindly gave us over 15,000 files to add to the database.
Rebecca Gow here in CALL, with help from James, a student, have gone through this treasure trove and sorted the files into complete books. Some of the books are beautifully laid out Large Print, whilst others are scanned copies of paper books. So why use the Large Print version and why use the original PDF? You can print out the Large Print version and therefore have a Large Print paper copy for the learner. The PDF from the publisher, on the other hand, looks just like the paper book and so may suit learners with a physical difficulty or dyslexia who might prefer the digital version to match the hard copy book. Books for All Database records and we hope that it is clearer and encourages staff to read and understand the terms and conditions.
We are very grateful to Tom for his understanding and for allowing us to share his publications, free of charge, so that learners with print disabilities can access them. Just before Christmas one of the files appeared on Wikispaces, freely downloadable. This emphasises how important it is to abide by the Books for All terms and conditions and to ensure that the files are only provided for learners with print disabilities. If we collectively don’t protect the publishers’ rights and property, they very likely won’t let us share their files. Thanks yet again to Marie Lawson in Shetland who has contributed New Maths in Action 31 in 18 point Large Print. This adds to the 11, 12, 21 and 22 books that Marie has already provided to the database.
