Read How You Want
ReadHowYouWant Pty Ltd and its R&D parent company, Accessible Publishing Systems Pty Ltd , are both Sydney, Australia-based privately held companies co-founded by electronic publishing pioneers Christopher Stephen and Greg Duncan. When Chris's sister, who suffers from MS, developed difficulty reading, they began experimenting to determine whether people with reading difficulties could benefit from changing the text format.  After more than four years of testing, ReadHowYouWant has successfully developed award-winning conversion technology that reformats existing books into high quality, alternative formats quickly, easily, and at price points comparable to standard format books.
