    Can I request a specific title to be converted into one of your formats?
    We work with most of the trade publishers to convert their titles into accessible formats. Most publishers supply new titles to us monthly. We can request specific titles from the publishers and, if they hold the rights, they may be able to supply the title for conversion.

    How do I order a different format?
    On the product page, on our websites, you will see boxes stating the various formats available for that title. Select the box of the format you require, and then add to cart. Double checkthat you have ordered the correct format in your cart and at the checkout.

    Are your braille editions supplied in a print/embossed edition?
    No, our braille is supplied in an electronic format. You require a Refreshable Braille Reader to read the braille editions. Here are more details https://www.readhowyouwant.com/Formats/Braille.
