Abstract: This article argues that governments around the world need to take immediate coordinated action to reverse the ‘book famine’. There are over 129 million book titles in the world, but persons with print disabilities can obtain less than 7 per cent of these titles in formats that they can read. The situation is most acute in developing countries, where less than 1 per cent of books are accessible.
