Where can I borrow audio books from?

  • RNIB Talking Books by digital download: our digital library service RNIB Overdrive lets you borrow and download up to six books at a time from our collection of over 20,000 titles to listen to on your computer, tablet or smartphone.
  • RNIB Talking Books on Daisy CD or USB stick: once you have subscribed you can borrow up to six books at a time from a selection of over 23,000 titles for adults and children. DAISY CDs require a DAISY player or DAISY software on your computer, USB sticks can be played using a USB player or on your computer.
  • Public libraries: Many libraries have audio book and magazine collections on CD or cassette available for loan for a small fee. Often blind and partially sighted people are exempt from these fees. Increasingly, downloadable audio books or eBooks with synthetic text to speech are offered by local libraries. This varies across the UK so it's worth checking with your local service if you are interested.
