Royal National Institute of Blind People Offers Free Access to Penguin Random House Books

Penguin Random House UK announced a partnership with the U.K.’s Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) to provide books to blind and partially sighted readers. The company is participating in two RNIB programs, RNIB Bookshare and Talking Books.

RNIB Bookshare offers free books to print-disabled learners (mostly people at schools and universities). More than 25,000 Penguin Random House titles are available in the program now, with new books becoming available as they’re released.

Talking Books is a free library with 40,000 registered users who can listen to special audiobooks via CD or digital download. Penguin Random House is allowing RNIB to adapt all of its audiobooks for the service.
