A $100,000 grant from the Education Department's Office of Special Education will fund efforts by the nonprofit initiative Bookshare to make digital textbooks more accessible to students with disabilities in California. "Those with reading challenges will soon be able to read the standards-aligned digital textbooks adopted under California's first-in-the-nation digital-textbook initiative," said Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. "These textbooks will be converted into accessible formats so students who struggle with reading traditional textbooks have a new opportunity to enhance their education," he said.
