Audio-Video Center

A young blind girl sits curled up on a chair listening to something on her Braille note.Below you will find links to the National Federation of the Blind's audio and video collection. Please check back frequently for new additions, as we are constantly updating this page.

HELPFUL HINTS: We have divided the materials into two main categories (Audio and Video) and then into topic subcategories within these two main categories. Within each subcategory, materials have been listed chronologically with the most recent pieces listed first.

In addition, we have a Most Recent Additions category which features those audio and video pieces added to this page most recently (even if they were recorded some time in the past).
