Talking Book Service Registration
Click here to register for NBPLS Talking Book Service, a service that gives people with print disabilities access to a wealth of accessible formats such as DAISY books on CD, braille books, described videos, e-text, e-audio and e-braille at their local public library or shipped to their mailing address.
Print disability or perceptual disability refers to a condition that prevents people from reading standard print due to severe or total impairment of sight or the inability to focus or move one’s eyes; the inability to hold or manipulate a book; or an impairment relating to comprehension.
All NBPLS libraries provide access to alternative format collections (which are available at the library and through the NBPLS website). They also provide access to adaptive workstations. In addition, NBPLS libraries provide access to restricted alternative format collections held by the Centre for Equitable Library Access (CELA) and Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) through the Service québécois du livre adapté (SQLA).
