BOOKOO is a complete solution for preparation or adaptation of textual materials for visually impaired people.
When visually impaired people need to work with printed materials such as documents, books or textbooks, they need to receive them in a form which is adapted to their special needs.
BOOKOO is a real breakthrough in the way how such materials are prepared for blind and visually impaired adults, children and students. It is possible to create a publication which exists in different forms with minimum additional work. Readers can then choose the right form or a combination of forms which is most convenient for them.
People with disabilities often prefer to work with documents in electronic form since they can enlarge them as they like, have them read aloud by speech synthesis or use other assistive technologies to work with them.
Online via Web
For people with disabilities, it is often convenient to read documents online since many assistive technologies work well in the web browser and because people are already familiar with working with the web browser.
Tactile Braille Print
People who are blind cannot use their eyes and their rely on their sense of touch to be able to read printed materials. Similarly to ordinary print, braille print has its own alphabet, typographical rules and customs. But instead of being printed with ink, it is composed of dots which are pressed into the paper.
People who are visually impaired often need larger letters, ample line spacing, more prominent table borders and other adjustments to be able to read printed materials.
Since BOOKOO makes it easy to create and to adapt existing documents into these accessible forms using a simple online web editor which resembles commonly used word processors, it can be used by any averagely skilled user without any special knowledge about accessibility.
