Over at Planet of the Blind, a post about pending budget cuts (up to half) for this program that provides reading materials for blind and disabled readers.
"The House of Representatives is currently considering an appropriations bill that would, among other things, cut by half the requested funds for the Library of Congress "Talking Books"program for blind and disabled readers. At stake are the funds necessary to move the old fashioned casette tapes of the library to digital playback. This transition is necessary because the old fashioned tape machines that play talking book tapes and which the blind have been using since the late sixties are no longer being manufactured. The Talking Books program which is also known as the National Library Service for the Blind must have the full funding in order to continue providing books to people with disabilities."
