Baker & Taylor worked closely with the National Federation of the Blind on the development of the service, which makes Axis 360 fully compatible with the leading assistive screen-reader technologies that blind people use to interact with computers and the World Wide Web. These include: JAWS (Job Access with Speech), Window-Eyes, NVDA (non-visual desktop access) and System Access To Go. Now, the entire digital library experience – from discovering new titles to checking them out, to reading them on the Blio ereader – is available to blind patrons and students, and to others with reading disabilities, in accordance with the mandates of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Released last year by Baker & Taylor, Axis 360 is a digital media circulation and management platform used by many of the country’s top libraries. It allows patrons to discover digital content, which they can then read using the Blio ereader.

The new upgrade was implemented for all Axis 360 libraries and will serve as the platform for all ongoing development and future growth of Baker & Taylor’s digital media library.
