Recordings for the Blind and Dyslexic (RFB&D)
Recordings for the Blind and Dyslexic now has more than 4,900 volunteers who added 4,167 titles to our library in the year 2003. RFB&D has also undertaken an innovative Educational Outreach initiative —- bringing services directly into the schools to train teachers and students how to most effectively use our recorded textbooks.
RFB&D recording technologies have changed with the times. SoundScriber discs were long ago replaced with the high-fidelity, four-track cassettes still in use today. In September 2002, a collection of over 6,000 RFB&D's AudioPlus® digitally recorded textbooks on CD was released. Eventually, members will have access to digitally recorded versions of many of more than 98,000 titles in our CV Starr Learning Through Listening® Library.
