    • Some of Libby's navigation currently works with screen readers. We're hard at work to release a screen reader-friendly version that supports iOS's VoiceOver and Android's Talkback.

      If you need more accessibility features than Libby currently offers, we recommend the Kindle Book option (U.S. only), using the OverDrive app, or using your library's OverDrive website.

    • In a book, tap the center of the screen, then The letter A . From there, drag the "Text scale" slider to change the size of the text.

      For a wider range of text sizes, toggle Include accessibility sizes on.

    • In a book, tap the center of the screen, then The Letter A . From there, tap OpenDyslexic under "Book Design."

    • In a book, tap the center of the screen, then The Letter A . From there, select Sepia or Dark under "Lighting."

      Lighting Mode

      Note: If your device is in dark mode, the reader in Libby will automatically use the dark theme, unless you manually change it to Bright or Sepia.

    • The OverDrive app is compatible with native screen readers for Android, iOS, and Windows 8/10.


      OverDrive for AndroidiOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), and Windows 8/10 is compatible with most accessibility programs and apps (including native ones like Android Accessibility SuiteVoiceOver for iOS, and Narrator for Windows). You can use these screen readers to navigate the app, browse for content, and listen to audiobooks.

      Most screen readers will also read the text of an eBook, but this isn't fully supported and may not function ideally.

      If you'd like to read accessible eBooks on your computer, we recommend downloading EPUB eBooks with Adobe Digital Editions because it's compatible with most screen readers.

      If you'd like to read accessible eBooks on your mobile device, you can borrow Kindle Books (U.S. only) through OverDrive, send them to the Kindle reading app, and read them using screen readers made for Android or iOS.
