Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic’s Entire Audio Collection Now Accessible on Mac and Windows

Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic (RFB&D), the nation’s largest provider of educational audio textbooks, announced that its entire collection is now accessible on Mac as well as Windows operating systems through the introduction of RFB&D ReadHear.

Through funding provided by the U.S. Department of Education, RFB&D will license the player to individual members for free (one copy per member, renewable after one year.) A new dual-platform software player enables users to access the entire library of RFB&D DAISY-formatted content on both Mac and Windows systems. The new technology will also support RFB&D’s developing generation of content containing digital text and audio.

A brief video product demonstration of the new RFB&D ReadHear solution is posted at: www.rfbd.org/readhear. The page is a one-stop info hub for Mac OS and Windows users, featuring technical specifications, “How To” and “Quick Start” documents; and an FAQ.

RFB&D’s collection of more than 63,000 digitally recorded textbooks and literature titles – delivered through internet downloads, various assistive technology devices, and CD – is the largest of its kind in the world. RFB&D, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, is funded by grants from the U.S. Department of Education, state and local education programs, and the generous contributions of individuals, foundations and corporations.
