The diffusion of e-books is remarkable. However, limited research has focused on accessibility functions, such as reading aloud and text magnification. The Act on the Elimination of Discrimination against Persons with Disabilities became effective in April 2016. This law enables the disabled to seek the elimination of societal barriers. Paper books are a societal barrier for the visually impaired and others. An important method of eliminating that barrier is digitizing books.

This is the first book in the country to comprehensively research the accessibility of e-books. This book considers the needs of the “visually impaired,” aged individuals who have trouble reading paper books due to far-sighted, and reading aloud for train commuters; moreover, this book will provide an accurate account regarding the current state of e-book accessibility and its future prospects.
