Taping For The Blind offers Custom Recording services free of charge to print-handicapped residents throughout the state of Texas. If you have printed material that is unavailable in an audio version, we will record it onto standard audio cassettes or audio CDs. We return the original printed material with the audio version to the client.
Since 1967 volunteers have recorded thousands of documents including textbooks, newsletters and instruction manuals onto standard audio cassettes. We custom record any print material not available through any other source.
Here's a partial list of material Taping volunteers have recorded for our clients:
- Special-interest publications
- How-to books
- Appliance instructions
