In Brief

“Unrated” announcement for commercial audiobooks

In future issues of Talking Book Topics, you may notice that some titles are tagged “unrated.” These titles are commercial audiobooks introduced as the result of recently formed partnerships between NLS and some commercial audiobook producers to increase the number of books in our collection and decrease the amount of time it takes to distribute bestsellers and other popular titles to our patrons.

Many of these audiobooks have yet to be released in print at the time that NLS receives them, so we cannot determine whether these titles contain sex, violence, or strong language. In lieu of the standard NLS notices for sex, violence, and strong language, these books will be marked “unrated,” which means that the book may or may not contain any of the three.

Newsstand     

The following announcements may be of interest to readers. The National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped reserves the right to publish announcements selectively, as space permits. The items mentioned, however, are not part of the NLS program and their listings do not imply endorsement.

Free audio Bibles

Audio Bibles for the Blind offers five English Bibles that can be read using an NLS digital talking-book player. These include the King James, New King James, English Standard (dramatized), New Century/International Children’s Bible, and World English Bible. A New King James New Testament with verse navigation is also available for patrons with advanced players. The audio Bible is available in twenty-five other languages, including Farsi, French, German, Haitian Creole, Hebrew, Mandarin, and Spanish. To receive a free audio Bible send a blank cartridge or a USB flash drive to Audio Bibles for the Blind, PO Box 621, Bradenton, FL 34206. For a $15 donation, Audio Bibles for the Blind will supply the cartridge. For more information send correspondence to the address above, call 888-566-2194, e-mail Allen Decker at adecker@auroraministries.org, or visit www.audiobiblesfortheblind.org.

Online educational opportunities

More than one hundred accessible free and fee-based online courses on a variety of educational subjects and life-training skills are available from CANnect (www.cannect.orgLink outside of Library of Congress), a consortium of agencies and schools whose mission is to create leading-edge educational opportunities for blind and visually impaired individuals, their families, and professionals who work with them. Courses include two Microsoft Excel offerings by the Carroll Center for Blind from Newton, Massachusetts, and a barrier-free information technology course by the Equal Access to Software and Information (EASI) organization. For more information, send an e-mail to rachel.rosenbaum@cannect.org.

iPad user guide available for purchase

iOS Success: Making the iPad Accessible—a Guide for Parents and Teachers is available for purchase from National Braille Press. The book, which assumes that the reader has never used an iPad, gives step-by-step instructions for every accessibility feature offered by the iPad and shares tips for pairing external devices such as keyboards and refreshable braille displays, setting up accounts to buy apps, and using iBooks, the Cloud, and Dropbox. The last chapter includes tips from blind students who use iPads. The large-print edition costs $28. The braille, eBraille, DAISY, ASCII, MP3, and Microsoft Word editions are $20. Purchase online at www.nbp.org Link outside of Library of Congress or by calling toll-free 800-548-7323.

Free Jewish religion courses

Free distance-learning courses on subject areas in Hebrew and Jewish studies are available in audio, braille, and large-print formats from Yismehu, a tax-exempt charitable organization. Courses are intended to enhance students’ appreciation of Judaism and allow them to more fully participate in Jewish worship and community life.

Books for Adults

Books listed in this issue of Talking Book Topics were recently sent to cooperating libraries. The complete collection contains a wide range of fiction and nonfiction books, including biographies, classics, westerns, mysteries, romances, and others. Contact your cooperating library to learn more or order books.

Titles and magazines are also available for download on the NLS Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) website at http://nlsbard.loc.gov/.

Note: A notice may appear immediately following the book description to indicate occurrences of violence, strong language, or explicit descriptions of sex. The word “some” before any of these terms indicates an occasional or infrequent occurrence, as in “some strong language.” Commercial audiobooks for which NLS does not have access to the print book may display the notice “unrated,” which means that the book may or may not contain violence, strong language, or descriptions of sex.
