Sonnar Library allows you to play over 12 000 books and magazines in accessible audio format.
According to the World Health Organization, Globally there are: 36 million people who are blind, 217 million who have moderate to severe vision impairment and approximately 1.1 billion people living with some form of disability.
For people who have a print disability – such as Arthritis, Dyslexia, Learning difficulties and even paralysis – access to information is severely limited.
Only 10% of all printed word in the world is accessible to people with these conditions. Though technology has increased accessibility to content, assistive technologies are usually expensive.
The limited access to information can have direct and long-term impact on all aspects of people’s lives. Such as education, employment, social and civic inclusion.
Sonnar’s mission is to provide a cloud-based audio content delivery platform accessible through “Smart Speaker” technologies.
