Reading & Radio Resource

When you have a print disability such as a visual impairment or learning disability, you might use two or three different reading methods in the same week.

You might, for example, listen to a DAISY audiobook on a Victor Reader Stream or iPod touch one day, copy an e-book into Word and enlarge the text on another, or listen as text-to-speech reads web content aloud.

To triage reading tasks, you must be aware of all available resources. Some, such as the National Library Service, can be a pillar of one's literacy, while others -- such as Reading & Radio Resource -- are more specialized.

Reading & Radio Resource records audiobooks for children and adults with print disabilities and broadcasts radio programming over the Internet aimed at listeners who are blind or visually impaired.

Their catalog contains thousands of books on MP3/CD and they can record books on request. They charge a small fee for books, but they're yours to keep, and may just fill a reading gap at a crucial time.
