  • Books Should Be Free  
    "Books Should Be Free" makes the world's public-domain audio books available for browsing in a visual and entertaining way. Books are browsable by their cover and include fiction, nonfiction, children's books, classics, and more.
  • LibriVox  
    LibriVox provides free audio books from the public domain. There are several options for listening. Audio books are available in several formats, such as mp3, ogg, and more.
  • Project Gutenberg- The Audio Books Project  
    Project Gutenberg makes audio e-books available in two different categories: human-read and computer-generated. These files can be very large, so are not good for modems or other low-speed connection.

Web accessibility refers to the inclusive practice of making websites usable by people of all abilities and disabilities.

When sites are correctly designed, developed and edited, all users can have equal access to information and functionality.
