EBSCO claim "accessibility is a key consideration" in their product design. Their ebooks are compatible with screen readers but note that:

  • PDF content will often be more readable and more easily navigated by screen readers when it is displayed directly in Adobe Reader and not opened in the web browser PDF documents should be downloaded to your device and opened  in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat when possible.
  • EPUB content will often be more readable and more easily navigated by screen readers when it is displayed directly in an application on the desktop. For EPUB documents, download them to your computer and open then in Adobe Digital Editions.
