We are pleased to announce that the NLS Studio recorded an audio file (.mp3) of our Blindness and Visual Impairments: Information and Assistance Organizations Reference Guide. Please contact Meredith Beckhardt for a .3GP audio file (NLS format) if you would like to download this Reference Guide onto a cartridge that has navigation markers. We hope to create a few more audio files of our more popular Reference Guides over the next year.

 

BONUS: NLS received 15 braille copies of each of the 2018 editions of “What You Need to Know When You Get Retirement or Survivors Benefits” and “Retirement Benefits” from the Social Security Administration. If you are interested in a copy, please contact the Reference Section.
