List of projects accepted into Benetech
Benetech is a 501c(3) nonprofit creating innovative technology for social change in literacy, human rights and the environment. In the our literacy program, our most prominent project is Bookshare - the world's largest online library of accessible books and textbooks for people with print disabilities (e.g. blind, dyslexic, quadriplegic, cerebral palsy).
Current generation smartphones and tablets are creating lower cost and richer reading experiences for people with print disabilities. GSoC students will have the opportunity to expand the capabilities and targeted disabilities of our open source Android Bookshare reading app, which went into public Beta in April 2012 as Go Read.
