Often times there are students in any classroom that require assistive technologies, in particular audio content. Any time I enter a new classroom of my own I immediately contact free matter for the blind resources to access recordings of a textbook I may be using. In the past many of these recordings required special tape players, but with new digital technology these books can be downloaded online, and texts that can be downloaded, like at Project Gutenberg, can be “read” via a text to speech function found in most operating systems. Some audiobook resources include the following:

Project Gutenberg

Assistive Media

Recorded Books.com

Audio Books For Free

Recordings for the Blind and Dyslexic

Free Books

NEW!  LibriVox

I know there are many other resources, but hopefully this will give you a start on these wonderful resources that can be used in your classroom.
