Description of App: 

Calibre Audio Library is a national charity supporting people who cannot read print because of sight loss, dyslexia or other disabilities. We deliver the pleasure of reading through our extensive library of unabridged audio books.

Our award-winning app, custom designed for this audience provides our members with a means of accessing our books independently and on demand on mobile devices using gesture controls and audio prompts.

The app is free to use for Calibre members. People who cannot read print can join Calibre Audio Library for a single fee of £35 for adults/ £20 for Under 16s which covers a lifetime membership. With no annual subscriptions, no charges per book and unlimited borrowing this service is vastly cheaper than commercially sourced audio books.

Listen anytime, anywhere synched on up to two devices per member.
