Sighted people don't have their books read by someone else other than them. Or they don't have their books Brailed either. To be able to enjoy their content. If a blind person chose, I suppose, he could go to the public library, borrow the print books, and scan them with his own home scanner. I did that. When first I got my "Open Book" Optical Character Recognition software program, and my personal scanner.

Same here, I know the tb service costs, subscriptions met some of that cost in prior times, but now it's all free, they will have a hard time if donations don't keep up with what even the heavily subsidised subscriptions brought in.

I dont necessarily think TB should be free. I am very happy for RNIB to seek donations. I just wonder about where it might end up. Will the strategy work?

Let me see if I have understood this properly. You think that the talking book service should be "free" - i.e. paid for from donations, but you don't think RNIB should actually ask for donations )which of course we are all free to make or not according to our preferences and circumstances) in order to run it.
Is that right?

Hello,

Just got email fron RNIB Connect, which contained the following:
"Help grow the Talking Books library

RNIB has launched a new online fund allowing supporters to donate more easily, as teams work hard to reach their targets through unique fundraising drives and activities.

The charity encourages those who find the talking books service of benefit to setup an online fund and a new book to the online shelf. You can find out more by visiting rnib.org.uk/talkingbooks"

Is it just me? I am puzzled as to exactly what this means?
Comes very soon after their making Talking Books free...
The link they provide does not give further info about this fund, as far as I can see.

Mike

lines  along the lines of"without your support we cannot continue to
