Accessible copies of our books
As part of our mission of making books for everyone, Penguin Random House UK works in partnership with several organisations to make our books accessible to readers who may need different formats.
RNIB is one of the UK’s leading sight loss charities and our books are available to RNIB members who are impacted by sight loss through their Reading Services initiatives. Digital and audiobooks are available to all members through Talking Books and learners can use Bookshare to access textbooks, materials and books that support the UK curriculum from early years to adult education.
We also give the RNIB access to reproduce Penguin Random House UK books in braille, large and giant print, and tactile diagram formats. If you need books in one of these formats, please contact the RNIN who can arrange this
Calibre Audio provide audiobook services to anyone who has a print disability which makes reading and understanding text difficult, including visual impairments, learning disabilities, physical dexterity conditions, and individuals who are experiencing long Covid. Calibre Audio members can access all Penguin Random House UK titles in audiobook format for free through their service.
If you have any other specific access requests, please get in touch by emailing [email protected] .
Our partnerships with RNIB and Calibre Audio support our efforts to make our books more inclusive and accessible as part of our Social Impact strategy. We are also ensuring that all newly published e-books meet high standards of accessibility, introducing new measures like full searchable and resizable text, captioned media and including clear navigation.
