instruction for the blind
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.
Many of you may not know that the National Library Service has been keeping the full libraries of Guitar by Ear and Piano by Ear lessons available for its clients to check out. The most recent order of 117 titles will mean they have well over 900 “by ear” titles ready for loan to their patrons.
