If you already are a member of Reading for the Blind and Dyslexic, you probably are aware of their additional new service: AudioAccess, allowing members to download books via the Internet to a PC computer.
Once downloaded they can be synced with a compatible portable media player for take-anywhere convenience.
For US citizens with documented print disabilities, Recording for the Blind and Dylexic (RFB&D) is an organization you might want to look at seriously. Even though it is freely available to all people of all ages, I am constantly encountering students entering Landmark College having graduated from high school with an IEP requiring alternative text as an accommodation and have never heard of this incredible resource. There are a few students who have been members since grade school and are dependent upon RFB&D for digital access to textbooks (the books were on Daisy formated CD’s and mailed back and forth). Obviously, we need to get the word out in as many formats and places as possible, especially since membership free until January of 2010. (There is an annual membership renewal fee of $35, which will begin a year after becoming a member.)
The AudioPlus service is also available (downloadable Daisy formatted books).
