The Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) has recently launched a new ‘Print Disability Licence’, This free licence allows organisations to reproduce copyright works in a format accessible to people with print disabilities, such as large print, braille or audiobooks, and circulate them to people with print disabilities in the community. 

The licence has been upgraded to reflect a recent widening of the definitions of print disability to include not just those people who have a visual impairment but also those with another disability that prevents them from reading books as easily as others. The definitions now include dyslexic readers following a request by the industry’s Accessibility Action Group and the Right to Read Alliance.
