About us

Teenager in a classroom, sitting at a laptop and using a CCTV. Load2Learn was founded by RNIB and Dyslexia Action with development funding  in 2011-2013 from the Department for Education. 

Load2Learn enables learners who cannot read standard print, including those with dyslexia and who are blind or partially sighted, to read the same books, at the same time as their classmates, giving them the same educational opportunities.

It is a free service, for use by staff who are supporting learners, in the UK, that have a print disability. 

We are able to provide this service at no cost thanks to our partners and supporters. We also have members who have contributed their resources to share with others using Load2Learn.
