Talking Book

Many of the Church’s materials are available on digital talking book cartridges. These cartridges can be used only with special audio players known as talking book players. Talking book players offer large buttons, braille letters alongside the controls, a sleep timer, built-in audio instructions, and advanced navigational features. In the United States, individuals who are blind or cannot see to read regular print can request a talking book player through their state’s library for the blind.
