NLS will stop producing Recorded Cassette books

Posted by Soliloquy in Accessible Book News

The National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS) will stop producing books as recorded cassettes (RC) on October 1st, sooner than expected. Magazines will continue on cassettes until further notice. The cassettes have been replaced by new digital book cartridges. Digital book cartridges are about the same size as a single cassette but the entire book fits on only one cartridge. There is no need to manage multiple cassettes or change sides anymore. The digital books on the cartridges are high quality human recorded audio without the hiss of cassette tapes. NLS will provide free digital book cartridge players over the coming years to all patrons.
