Audio–Read Navigators for the vision impaired

Audio Reader

The Library has Audio-Read Navigators, a new Australian designed digital audio player, for loan to vision impaired Mosman residents.

They are a handheld device about the size of a television remote control which contains digital audio titles downloaded to the Navigator. They contain audio content of between 45 – 90 hours of listening, that’s at least 5 -10 audio books.

They are designed to be easy to use, and have the ability to be used simply as a playback unit and also have the additional enhancement to allow users to navigate between books, chapters or sections of books, with book marking.

Those customers already using them find them a boon, as they only have to borrow one Navigator which has multiple titles loaded on, instead of several bulky CD or cassette audio books – no more changing CD’s or tapes.

Please let your vision impaired family members and friends know about this wonderful service.

For further information or to express an interest in the Navigators contact Janis Papanicolaou, Home Library Service Librarian on 99784093.
