Audio Books for the Blind

Volunteer in UAE aims to support Youth for Seva in India by using volunteer manpower to record audio books so that visually impaired students and aduits can enjoy the same books we do everyday!

How does it work?

Audio book recording is done in collaboration with the Youth for Seva (YFS) organization in India. YFS provides books for visually impaired students, as well as compiling an ever-growing database of audio books for both leisure and education. 
Audio book recording events work as follows: YFS provides soft copies of the books to be recorded. These soft copies are then distributed over a number of our volunteers, who then record themselves reading their respective sections out loud. Recording is done from the comfort of the volunteer’s home and in their own time, provided they meet a predetermined deadline. 

How to volunteer for this?

In order to be eligible to sign up for audio book recording events, a volunteer must once attend the regularly-scheduled training session. Once the volunteer has attended the training session once, he or she becomes eligible for all future recording events (provided the book being recorded is in a language they speak!). Volunteers also need to have a computer with a reasonable-quality microphone, and will need to download and install the free software Audacity (more information is provided in training sessions).
