Accessible copies of our books

Penguin Random House UK works in partnership with the RNIB (Royal National Institute for the Blind) - one of the UK’s leading sight loss charities and the largest community of blind and partially sighted people - to provide access to our books for readers affected by sight loss.

If you are a member of the RNIB, you will soon be able to find our books in a range of formats in the Bookshare, Talking Books and RNIB Libraries.

If you are not a member of the RNIB or have a specific access request, please get in touch by emailing accessiblefilesrequest@penguinrandomhouse.co.uk.

This partnership will support our efforts to make our books more inclusive and accessible as part of our Creative Responsibility strategy. We are also ensuring that all newly published e-books meet high standards of accessibility, introducing new measures like full searchable and resizable text, captioned media and including clear navigation.
