We are thrilled to share that Nick Gleeson’s wonderful memoir, The Many Ways of Seeing, has been added to Vision Australia’s online library. The Vision Australia Library opens up a world of information to people who are blind, have low vision, or a print disability by providing free access to thousands of audio books, magazines, newspapers and podcasts.
Jane Curry, director and publisher of Ventura Press and director of the Australian Publishers Association (APA), recently attended the APA Marrakesh Treaty Forum, which looked at strategies to make print material accessible to people with a print disability.
“Through working with the participants at the Marrakesh Treaty Forum I realised how vital it is that vision impaired persons have equal access to published books. How wonderful that Nick Gleeson’s The Many Ways of Seeing has been added to the Vision Australia Library,” Jane says.
