Books for Visually Impaired

An Australian start-up company, ReadHowYouWant, is offering the visually impaired more options in large print editions: 16-24 point type, according to this PW article. They currently offer about 500 titles via their web site and Amazon.com.

This is good, of course. This idea seems a good fit for eReaders, too. When viewing FFO stories, your browser gives font-size options. In both recent Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers, it is under the View/Text Size menu. On Safari, it is View/MakeTextLarger.
