BARD - Braille and Audio Reading Download: Downloading to All Devices
If you have library patrons who are print disabled and members of the OLIS Talking Books Library program, and you would like to learn more about BARD, join us for a demonstration and training on how to download from BARD to multiple devices (laptop, iPhone, android phone, Kindle Fire, iPad). If you would like to try downloading to your own personal device, be sure to bring it with you. TBL staff will be available to assist you at the session as well. If your library is not a member of Talking Books currently, you can apply for an institutional account for Talking Books to support your print disabled patrons love of reading.
