VisAbility’s Online Library Catalogue is the largest digital library in the Southern Hemisphere catering for people with vision impairment or print disability.

Search our collection of more than 70,000 book titles, download titles (restrictions apply to copyrighted titles). We are continually adding titles and you can submit requests for a specific book to be converted into an alternative, accessible format (eg. DAISY, large print or Braille) if we do not currently have it available.

Digital books are produced in special audio book format known as DAISY, which is a worldwide standard developed specifically for people who have a print disability. There is no cost for the download service.
