NCompass Live: New to Talking Book & Braille Service: Downloads and Apps! - Online 


There are a few new ways to read talking books. For borrowers who use computers, the National Library Service BARD website allows for downloadable books that can be used with our digital players, and for borrowers with iPhones or iPads, a new app makes reading on mobile devices a breeze! Scott Scholz and David Oertli, from the NLC's Talking Book and Braille Service, will demo these new options for TBBS users.

NCompass Live is broadcast live on Wednesdays, from 10am - 11am Central Time. Convert to your time zone on the Official U.S. Time website or use the World Clock Time Zone Converter. In the Time Zone Converter, NCompass Live is broadcast from U.S.A - Nebraska - Lincoln.

Sessions are recorded for anyone who may want to see them again or who cannot attend them at the scheduled time. Registration is not required to view the archived recordings.

NCompass Live is presented online using the GoToWebinar online meeting service. GoToWebinar login instructions are sent to registered attendees after registration for a session has closed. The Registration End date is listed on each session page, but usually closes on the Monday night before the date of the session. Please see the NLC Online Sessions webpage for detailed information about GoToWebinar, including system requirements, firewall permissions, and equipment requirements for computer speakers and microphones.
