Talking Books

Abby is so excited. She got her Talking Book player from the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped  (NLS) She is able to get 1000s of book in audio format for no cost at all. The player is even provided .  She gets the books ether sent to her by the mail from our state library or we can download many of them.

Abby got the newest type of machine. The digital advanced player. It plays digital cartridges and also plays books downloaded from the NLS's BARD website.  We are also able to download books from RFB&D which offers books and textbooks in audio format.

NLS digital player is perfect for a child with a visual impairment. It has big colorful buttons, (with braille labels) The cartridges are easy to change.  The speaker that is on it sounds great. . (we also attached earphones)   You can run the machine without having to see at all.  Amazing.

Our daughter also got this system, Can you share with me how you download books? We have received a couple of them in the mail, but I would like to be able to search and download them. Love the doll cane!!! What a great idea.
