Audio Book Request

Students who are registered with the Accessibility Resource Center (ARC) and have been approved for the alternative format/audio books accommodation may submit their request by completing the Audio Book Request form. Upon receiving your completed request AND proof of purchase/receipt of textbook(s) ARC will begin to fulfill your request.

If you are having difficulties when uploading a copy of your receipt, please bring the receipt to Founder's Hall, Room 99, or send a separate email to arc@cabrini.edu with your proof of purchase.

**PLEASE NOTE** When requesting alternative formats/audio books, the process can be lengthy and may take between two to three weeks.

The ARC now provides electronic formats of textbooks when they are not already available at the Cabrini Book Store.

An online repository - www.Bookshare.org - provides books in a variety of formats. Bookshare books may be listened to using a variety of text-to-speech apps. It's free for students! 

Using the Kindle App for EBooks and E-Texts

Use Kindle to enhance your e-reading experience. Download the FREE Kindle App to your iOS, Android, Mac, or PC by going to https://www.amazon.com/kindle-dbs/fd/kcp.

The Kindle App will enable you to download any EBooks or E-texts that you have purchased onto your computer, smartphone, or tablet. You can also import PDFs to this App to use the Kindle features.

What Features Are Available through the Kindle App?

You can highlight the text, add notes, export these highlights and notes, create flashcards, and bookmark pages. These notes and highlights are all conveniently kept next to the text of the book or article as you read.

The Kindle App also supports text-to-speech features on most devices, and the Kindle for PC supports screen reader technology provided by NVDA 2017.1 or higher and JAWS on Windows Computers.
