ProQuest provide Accessibility Mode as an option that can be turned on within Ebook Central by using a screen reader such as JAWS or VoiceOver. Once turned on, Ebook Central's interface changes to a text-based view and the screen reader can then be used to read the text on the screen and control navigation.
Once accessibility mode is enabled, your screen reader will read out instructions on toggling the mode off in case you ever need to disable it.
Accessibility mode can also be enabled by the Ebook Technical Support team. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request accessibility mode if you cannot enable it directly using your screen reader.
Changing Text Size
Text throughout Ebook Central can be resized using standard browser or operating system controls without loss of content or functionality and without use of horizontal scrolling.
Changing Font and Background Colours
Foreground and background colours may be inverted by the user.
You can use your screen reader with chapter download or full document download on Ebook Central.

Text can then be read using the normal features within the software.Read aloud features within your device's operating system, or free accessibility tools will also work with eBook Central.
