Currency Reader for the Blind

Currency Reader

The U.S. currency reader is on the way! The U. S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) has developed a currency reader for the blind and is partnering with the Library of Congress’ National Library Service for the Blind in order to distribute the free device to people who are already certified for Talking Books. The distribution will begin in January and you should let your librarian know that you are anxious to receive one.

The BARD Mobile app allows our Talking Book customers to access Braille and talking books directly from NLS (BARD). BARD offers a  collection of nearly 50,000 books, magazines, and musical scores, with new selections added daily.

BARD is up and running again despite the government shutdown. There has also been a mobile app set up for iPhones or iPads. You can obtain the free app from the Apple iTunes store.
