Podcast With A Blindness Perspective.

Jul 31, 2019

Blind Abilities Teen correspondent, Simon Bonenfant, was in the Exhibit Hall in Las Vegas attending the NFB Convention when he caught up with Tamra representing the National Library Service. Tamra fills us in on all the services NLS provides and who can apply for the free service of accessible books in Braille and Audio formats.

Join Tamra and Simon in this brief introduction to the BARD service from NLS. BARD stands for Braille and Audio Books Download.
