Too often, the lives of those who have served our country – our veterans – are irreversibly changed by physical injury or other service-connected disabilities. Together, we can improve the lives of our veterans by giving them the gift of reading. Join us, and tell your friends about Benetech’s Bookshare for Veterans!
Why? Because everyone deserves the right to read. For veterans with print disabilities, reading books and periodicals can be difficult if not nearly impossible. With your support, we will provide our veterans with access to the books they need for education and employment!
What is Bookshare? Bookshare is an online library of accessible reading materials – from bestsellers to textbooks – available in text-to-speech formats that can be read using assistive technology or even a smartphone. Read more about Bookshare and other initiatives of Benetech’s Global Literacy program here.
What is Benetech? Benetech is a different kind of tech company — a nonprofit that develops innovative and effective technology applications for unmet social needs. Come learn more about Benetech's program areas and our approach to innovation on our website.
