How the books come to life...

Audio books covering a wide range of subjects are narrated and recorded in Tape Aids For The Blind's studios by trained volunteers. Recreational and educational books for adults and children are produced in eleven official languages of South Africa.

Copyright permission is obtained from publishers and literary agents and new titles are constantly being added to the collection. We endeavour to maintain a balanced library stock in order to afford members the same range of subject matter available to sighted people.

Volunteers are auditioned and wherever possible the voice is cast and matched to the content and style of the book. 

Recording is done in soundproof studios in Durban, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, Pietermaritzburg. 

The master tape collection now exceeds 38 000 titles.
