Accessibility Features

The online book viewer for EBSCO eBooks allows users to Zoom content beyond 200%. The EBSCO Ebook platform has been tested with a range of accessibility tools including screenreaders such as JAWS and NVDA. 

EBSCO's online reader provides books in two formats, PDF and EPUB. Many books are available in both formats, while others are available only in one format.

  • PDF format books have distinct pages, which allow for page-level citations. They have a fixed page size that may not work well on all devices or screen sizes/zoom levels. PDF eBooks are compatible with screen readers using an ASCII text layer.
  • EPUB books automatically resize to fit your screen, and are composed of HTML. This format inherently works well with screen readers as it was designed for accessibility and navigation. Most EPUBs contain heading levels that can be used to navigate within the content.

Downloads may be available in PDF and/or EPUB format.
