Q. How to turn on Accessibility Mode in Ebook Central
Ebook Central contains a small collection of individual Ebooks purchased by the library.
If you are using a screen reader, the option to turn accessibility mode on or off gets read out by your screen reader. Once turned on the interface changes to a text-based view.
Sign in to Ebook Central to turn on the accessibility mode.

Ebook central was Ebrary, and we used to subscribe to the whole database.
Ebrary no longer exists. We buy individual ebooks from Proquest which Ebook Central hosts.
