For those of you living in the UK, Load2Learn is a free service that is provided for staff in schools to help them support learners who have difficulty reading standard print. Load2Learn enables learners in the UK who cannot read standard print, including those with dyslexia and who are blind or visually impaired, to read the same books, at the same time as their classmates, giving them the same educational opportunities.  Curriculum materials, including textbooks, test papers and images, can be downloaded in a range of file formats and then adapted to suit the personal reading needs of individual students. There are currently over 2,000 titles and 1,000 images to download and documents can be used by  learners with their own technology, or used to create customized on-screen, print, braille, and audio versions.  Funded by the Department for Education, Load2Learn has been developed by founding partners Dyslexia Action and RNIB.
