New Zealand Books is now accessible for blind and partially sighted readers. The December 2011 anniversary issue was the first to be made available to 2,900 sight-impaired magazine borrowers through the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind.
It was also the first externally published magazine to be sent out in synthetic speech format. Veronica Hogan, RNZFB Acquisitions, Interloans and Telephone Information Services Librarian, wrote, “Thank you and your team for going the extra mile to make this work available for our blind and partially sighted readers. It is very exciting to be able to work with you with this new technology that allows our members to read print material at the same time as their sighted peers.”
