Join us for the next NCompass Live: “New to Talking Book & Braille Service: Downloads and Apps!”, on Wednesday, November 20, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.

There are a few new ways to read talking books. For borrowers who use computers, the National Library Service BARD website allows for downloadable books that can be used with our digital players, and for borrowers with iPhones or iPads, a new app makes reading on mobile devices a breeze! Scott Scholz, from the NLC’s Talking Book and Braille Service, will demo these new options for TBBS users.
