Apple's iBooks App and Store Includes Accessibility Features

iBooks, the Apple iPad application that doubles as a digital bookstore and electronic book reader, supports VoiceOver, the iPad's built-in screen reader. Using familiar gestures, content from the iBooks store or synced to the user's device via iTunes can be read page-by-page or in a continuous fashion by VoiceOver.

Additionally, font and brightness settings can be fine-tuned to accommodate low vision users with larger fonts or greater contrast.
