The Encyclopedia Britannica
Since its first publication in 1768, The Encyclopedia Britannica has been considered
the world's most comprehensive reference product. Unfortunately, for more than 200
years this reference material was not accessible in its entirety to people who were
blind or visually impaired.
With the advances in the field of technology and the power of the Internet, this
research tool is now available to blind computer users.

Collegiate Dictionary and the Britannica Book of the Year.
