PressReader Accessibility.
For everyone who loves reading.

PressReader accessibility

At PressReader, we believe reading should be accessible to everyone.

We know many readers rely on tools or assistive technology to access content at learning centers, institutions, and businesses. That’s why we created accessibility mode that meets government-mandated accessibility criteria (WCAG 2.1.). With navigation, audio, tab navigation, color contrast, large named buttons, and user font size control — it’s here to serve readers who need it most. It’s an inclusive product for users worldwide.

Not only is it accessible, but it also doubles as a research tool. PressReader’s text-only version is stripped down to pull relevant content even faster — making it easier for researchers to get the information they need.

We built a first-to-market product with a AA standard, and we did it independently rather than enhancing our current platform. It’s an immersive experience custom created for those who need it.

Access your favorite
publications with just a keyboard

Integrated keyboard navigation allows readers to browse publications with just a few taps — making it simple for those with motor disabilities or vision impairment. They can switch from one article to the next using the TAB and ENTER keys.


Text adjusted for your
visual requirements

Flexible font size is key to making content accessible to everyone. We’ve made it possible for readers to enlarge or shrink the font size on our publications to fit their unique needs.

Seamless reading experience

PressReader Accessibility extracts text from the original newspaper or magazine replica and presents it in a way that’s simple to navigate. Publications break down into sections for easy reading, so readers don't need to scan through an entire page to find what they're looking for. They can focus on one article at a time to reduce distractions.


Reading or listening
fit for everyone

Visually impaired readers rely on screen readers to convert digital text into speech — allowing them to listen to the content on the screen. PressReader Accessibility is compatible with popular screen readers on the market. It’s also available through the internet browser on desktop and mobile devices.
