Perkins Braille and Talking Book Library and Burlington Public Library proudly present The Digital Talking Book Player and Audiobooks for borrowing.
The Digital Talking Book Player is the latest technology used for playing Talking Books. Talking Books are special audiobooks designed for people who are unable to use print books due to a disability.
The Digital Talking Book Player features large easy to use buttons with voice prompts. Patrons can borrow the Talking Book Player and our sample audiobooks to try the technology. If you or someone you know has a disability that makes it hard to read print books, this is a great way to learn about the Digital Talking Book Player. People who qualify can apply to Perkins to use their library services and order a free Talking Book Player and audiobooks for their personal use. Perkins has hundreds of fiction and nonfiction titles.
Please note that Talking Books are not just for the visually impaired. Qualified persons include anyone unable to read print books due to a disability, such as, arthritis, Parkinson's, MS, stroke, and learning disabilities such as dyslexia. If you qualify, Perkins mails you the Player and the audiobooks. When you are finished, you mail them back with the included label from Perkins. It is so easy. Borrow it today.
