Likewise,I'd pay for this especially with the text books on offer, but I like to wonder about when I'm reading or lay on the sofa.
It's not that comfortable sitting in your desk chair when you've been sitting in it working all day.
It's certainly sounds like a promising step forward.

Hi John. Is there a rough timeframe on when downloads will be along? Months or years?
I'm really excited about the idea of this service. Great to see the RNIB spearheading this. I'd definitely pay for it if there were downloads but am unlikely to use the streaming service because I don't associate book reading with sitting at a computer.
Thanks ...Damon----- Original Message ----- From: John Godber

hello brian,you can't download books right now. we're in negotiation with the software manufacturers to obtain the necessary permissions. so downloads will come before too long.

hello listers,I thought you'd be interested to know about a new web catalogue and book streaming service from RNIB. If you go to www.rnib.org.uk/booksite you will find our new, very user friendly catalogue containing all our audio books, Braille books, music and maps. You can also register and buy items that are for sale. The audio books are not just our conventional talking books but also daisy versions of many of the most popular titles that we have recorded for individuals. So as well as fiction and biographies you can find cookery, gardening, the whole range of academic subjects and even books on the Archers and old steam railways.
You can also join our bookstream bookclub and for £50 a year you can stream audio books direct to your PC. So, just like a sighted person, you can browse around, find something you're in the mood for and begin reading it straight away.
But take a look for yourself and tell us what you think.If you've got any queries that aren't answered on the site itself you can contact our technology support team on 08459 000015.
Or talk to customer services on 0845 702 5153 You are also most welcome to contact me directly by email: john.Godber@xxxxxxxxxxxx
