Broad distribution audiobooks became a true revolution in the provision of blind and visually impaired soul food and educational services. After all, learning is not only blind but visually impaired children – a difficult teacher problem. Print Braille – pretty expensive event, virtually stranded for commercial publishers (or the price of books would be too high, making them unaffordable for the vast majority of buyers).

Therefore, selection of modern books printed in a special font for the blind, is not enough. Translate to blind the entire range of literature relevant – in Russian conditions and available funding difficult, if not impossibly task. In addition, visually impaired people are not always willing to learn to read Braille, as often can parse large letters, and not so focused on the tactile sensations, as blind. Finally, the method of teaching reading to the blind is very difficult for those who recently lost his eyesight or suffer progressive deterioration of vision.

It is therefore important initiatives like the presentation at the National Library of Udmurtia.

Audiobooks – real opportunity to make literature accessible to visually impaired and blind people. Audiobooks are easier to produce than books printed in Braille. This means that they are cheaper, but also – more opportunities for expanding the range of books. Very important is the fact that audio books can also use blind and visually impaired – regardless of when they lost their sight and are familiar with a special font for the blind. No special skills not required reading. Just put on headphones – and listen to every audiobook. It is very convenient for retirees who began to lose his sight, and for visually impaired young people. Audiobooks – the most democratic form of information for blind and visually impaired people. Finally, audio books are ideally suited to modern format of the electronic reader, impressed with a lot of people on Earth that does not need to have shelves and cabinets with folios as an e-book is in mainly "virtual space". Sure, very convenient that on the same disc can be recorded several audio books or even a library. Now, any low vision can go on a trip or vacation, with a bag of multiple drives with audio books.
