For people with low vision, the Internet represents one of the best adaptive aids available. Simply by increasing your computer's font size, or using a screen magnifier or screen reader, you can access a world of study material that might otherwise be unaccessible, or simply unavailable. One area in which this is very clear is in the realm of Jewish Religious Studies.
Unfortunately, there is very little religious material available in large print. And often, when a book is re-printed in large print, commentaries are either eliminated or abridged. However, many fine works, complete with commentaries, are available online. As well, there is a wealth of recorded lectures and courses that can be listened to over the Internet.
What we have attempted to accomplish with this list is to compile a select list of worthwhile Jewish Religious Study sites, both for the beginner and for the advanced student. If you have any questions as to the validity of any of these sites, we would encourage you to consult with your Rabbi.
