Tape Aids for the Blind is like any public library, they lend thousands of books to their members. The difference being, their books travel by freepost to destinations around the country. They dispatch around 2 000 books and magazines on tape each day.
Members borrow, free of charge, books of every classification - from best-sellers to classics, mysteries, westerns, thrillers, poetry, biographies, religious literature and children's books.
They also borrow popular magazines in recorded format. They send out some 30 000 magazine cassettes every month.
What can you do?
As much or as little as you want. It's up to you. You can provide financial sponsorship. Tape recorders. Headphones. A Copyette for duplicating tapes. Even your voice.
Please note that a number of our volunteer opportunities, such as those for studio recording narrators and monitors, are location specific.
Tape Aids for the Blind has recording studios in Durban (Head Office), Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town.
