Audio Books

We offer audio books free or at media cost to the blind readers. Free download is available for selected audio books and stories. Any print-disabled person may collect these audio / talking books on his memory drive absolutely free or at the cost of CD/DVD.

Audio books in Bengali, produced by Blind Persons’ Association are listed here. Contact our library for audio books collected from other sources. These audio books are recorded for the benefit of print-disabled readers under S52 (1) (zb) of the Copyright Act of India, 1957 (amended in 2012). Any unauthorised reproduction or editing of these books is strictly prohibited. We are seriously concerned that some of our materials are published on the web without any regard to copyright restrictions. A YouTube channel has even dropped relevant portions of the audio book “Helen Keller” to avoid acknowledging in any form.
