Jayne Ringo's Visit at Braille and Talking Book Library January 13, 2012
Posted Jan 15, 2012 13:13
I'm so excited to tell you all about my visit to the Braille and Talking Book Library. My author friends, Conrad Storad and Lynda Exley, and me were invited there to record our newest book, "Arizona Way Out West & Witty: Library Edition."
They even let me use the controls! If you visit the tour page of our website, you can see a photo of us!
It was a lot of hard work, but it's all for a good cause. Conrad and Lynda had to read their entire book into this microphone so it could get recorded. Once it is all recorded, the Braille and Talking Book Library staff and volunteers put it onto special devices with USB plugins. It's kind of like a thick business-size plastic card thingy. The plastic card-like thing goes into this other machine that looks like an old-fashioned tape recorder. Once you plug the plastic card into the machine, you can hit play and listen to the whole book.
The whole process makes it possible for people who are legally blind to listen to our book on the machine. Anyone who is blind or unable to hold a book in their hands for whatever reason can call the Braile and Talking Book Library at 602-225-5578 and ask to borrow the machine and plastic card devices for free!
That is so cool!
