Talking Books

A Talking Book in its fullest implementation is a group of digitally encoded files containing an audio portion recorded in human speech; the full text of the work in electronic form, marked with tags of a descriptive mark-up language; and a linking file that synchronizes text and audio portions. The players allow reading or playback of the digital format of books intended for persons with disabilities to provide opportunities to increase the quality and availability of information. Listed below is a sample of some playback technology available.
