The online catalogue from the Vision Australia Information Library Service provides access to specially prepared audio books, newspapers and magazines that can be read by any person with a print disability, using appropriate software and technology. All the titles use the latest technologies to enable people with a print disability to browse through a book, magazine or newspaper and easily use a table of contents, in much the same way as a sighted reader. Most of us take for granted the range of advanced search features in catalogues, yet only in the 21st century have these features finally become available in an Australian library service for the print-disabled community.
