Audio Services

A volunteer in the recording booth at ABLE.

ABLE works to provide audio access to print materials that would otherwise be inaccessible to persons who are blind, visually impaired, or print disabled. Materials are produced either with the help of our volunteer narrators or by utilizing text to speech technology.

Our goal is to meet the needs of individual clients. Finished projects are delivered via digital cartridge, thumb drive, or compact disk. Most items are designed to be played on digital cartridges, which can be used with the Digital Talking Book Players supplied through the Wisconsin Talking Book and Braille Library.

To the man who recorded “Ill-Met by Moonlight” for me: Thank you so much. What a wonderful gift. I stayed up until 4:00 a.m. listening. I re-lived the experiences described in the book, and my own experiences as an archaeologist in Crete. Thank you for your brave efforts with all of the Greek names for people and places in the book.
