Borrowing Books - Digital Talking Books
Digital Talking Books (DTBs) are the newest medium available from the Library.
- Flash-memory cartridges
- Entire book on one cartridge
- No rewinding
- Superior sound quality
The first DTBs were received in May, 2009. New titles are trickling in, but it will take a while to build up the collection. In the meantime, you have the opportunity to expand your reading interests and try different authors or subjects!
BARD: The National Library Service Braille and Audio Reading Download
Another option for accessing Digital Talking Books is by downloading them from the NLS BARD website. Over 15,000 titles are available. Once you have downloaded a book to your computer, you can transfer it to a flash-memory “jump” drive, to a personal book cartridge (available for purchase soon), or directly to a third-party player, such as the Victor Reader Stream.
