Indiana Voices is a program that focuses on recording and circulating Indiana-related books and magazines that are otherwise unavailable in an audio format. The program is funded thanks to a grant from the Ruth Lilly Philanthropic Foundation.
Indiana Voices materials are recorded digitally and transferred to a digital talking book cartridge that can be read only by specialized playback machines provided at no cost to patrons of the Indiana Talking Books and Braille Library.
Indiana Voices materials are produced in the Ruth Lilly Recording Studio, which currently produces digitally-mastered, high-quality works made standard by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
The program relies on the efforts of volunteers who donate their time as narrators, monitors and reviewers to provide quality Talking Books. A complete listing a description of volunteer opportunities is available online.
