In Brief

Transition from cassettes to cartridges

Beginning with the January–February issue of Talking Book Topics (TBT), some audio subscribers who were receiving the magazine on cassette will now be receiving it on cartridge. For a time, some individuals will get both the cassette and the cartridge. An order form will be mailed with the cassette version of TBT. As the transition continues, the TBT order form will be sent out separately from the audio cartridge version of the publication. The TBT order form will be sent to subscribers as usual in the first week of the second month. Depending on your location and magazine subscription profile, you may receive the TBT audio cartridge before or after you receive the order form. This process will be streamlined by the middle of the year. Please bear with us and accept our apologies for any inconvenience as we upgrade our media to digital.
