summary Widespread distribution of electronic book readers, commonly called “e-readers” seems to have taken off seriously over the last year. Although the first e-readers popped up almost twenty years ago, last year’s market appearance of a completely reworked Amazon Kindle 2, a new series of Sony PRS readers and several Bookeen & Cybook devices made e-books quite popular. All of them can store thousands of books, are extremely light weight and very mince..Many of them present however problems for persons with low vision or blindness. We will discuss briefly the situation and possible solutions.
