All students should be able to fully experience the magic of illustrated books! Imagination Videobooks creates and publishes animated videobooks and audiobooks of existing illustrated children’s books. Their mission states, “We believe all children should have equal access to early education.”
Imagination Storybooks on the Desribed and Captioned Media Program houses the collection of audio described videobooks for students who are blind or low vision; the books include captions for students who are deaf or hard of hearing! There are currently 75+ free Imagination Videobooks available and more are coming.

The AudioBook Wizard also partners with Imagination Videobooks to create and publish accessible audiobooks. This collection of audio described books in podcast format is designed specifically for students who are blind or low vision.
