Subject: Recording for the Blind needs you!

The following is reprinted from an announcement distributed by Recording for
the Blind in major cities across the country.


Volunteers are urgently needed to produce recorded textbooks in

Recording For the Blind (RFB) headquartered in Princeton, NJ, is a
national nonprofit organization that provides taped educational
materials free on loan, and books on diskette, for people who cannot
read standard print. The textbooks are recorded by RFB volunteers at
recording studios throughout the country. Volunteers are needed not
only to fill vacancies in our present recording teams, but to form new
teams to record linguistics texts. Each book is produced by two-
person teams who are knowledgeable in the subject areas; one person
reads the book, the other is a monitor who operates the recording
machine to make sure the reader is reading correctly, and offers
suggestions about the description of figures.

If you live near Boston, New York City, Princeton, or Los Angeles, you
can join those already working on these textbooks. If not, you may be
near one of our other twenty-nine recording studios.

For further information, call Sarah Johns at RFB: (609) 452-0606.

If you have any questions or would like more information, you may
additionally contact me via E-mail.
