Tar Heel Reader

Recently, on the QIAT list (a group of professionals who discuss Assistive Technology), a new web resource was introduced. The resource is called Tar Heel Reader.  This is a simple to use service which allows you to create eBooks in minutes.  The pictures are from the photo site Flickr.com.  The books can be looked at online, or downloaded to powerpoint or a Adobe flash player.   If you read the book online you can have it read by 3 different voices.  Over 180 books are already available online in a variety of topics.  Check it out and start creating!!

BTW - There is a code you will need to join and start writing books (to keep out the spammers). If you are interested, please leave me a comment and I'll give you the code.

Thank you to Samuel Sennott for sharing this information with all of us.
