Historically, people who are blind or visually impaired have relied on braille translations or taped audio versions of everything from best-selling novels to textbooks to magazines. As big supporters of braille literacy, we believe utilizing this format of reading is incredibly valuable to people who are blind or visually impaired. We are also big believers in utilizing assistive technology that makes everyday tasks more convenient for those in the community. Everyone has heard of services, such as Audible that offer thousands upon thousands of book titles to enjoy, however, there are several others that are worth noting that often offer select book titles for free!
Here’s a list of the top ten audiobook websites for people who are blind or visually impaired:
There are many services available for people that make reading, in its many forms, possible. The National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped administers a free library program of braille and audio materials for eligible users. If you’re from the Milwaukee-area, Audio Braille and Literacy Enhancement, Inc. (ABLE) also offers a wide variety of high quality audio, digital and braille materials for anyone in need. Visit the ABLE website for more information.
