The Centre for Equitable Library Access (CELA) provides informational YouTube videos about the accessible content they provide their patrons. This video describes the different accessible book formats CELA offers.
The information is summarized from CELA’s What is an accessible book? YouTube video.
- An accessible book is a book that has features which make reading possible for people with disabilities.
- The accessible formats CELA offers are:

- Braille books, both in hard copy and electronic braille formats.
- Printbraille books are children’s books with transparent braille sheets between each page.
