Newsroom Braille and Audio Reading Download App Now Available

Topeka, KS, — The State Library of Kansas Talking Books is pleased to announce the newly available Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) Mobile app. The free app (available through the Apple App Store) allows readers to download and access nearly 50,000 books, magazines and music scores in audio and braille formats, with new selections added daily.

“The State Library of Kansas is excited about the opportunity BARD Mobile brings to Kansas,” said State Librarian Jo Budler. “With BARD Mobile, patrons will be able to receive their reading materials faster than our digital playback equipment allows, however, Talking Books digital players and cartridges will remain available without cost to the reader.”

Kansas Talking Books provides personalized library support and materials in a specialized format to eligible Kansas residents to ensure that all may read. This library service is available to Kansas residents who are unable to read or use standard printed materials due to visual impairment, physical impairment or reading disabilities.
