Brief Description

Sight into Sound, originally Taping for the Blind was founded when Mr. Robert Levy encouraged the Library of Congress to greatly broaden its catalog of "Talking Books" specifically created for the blind and print - handicapped. His efforts were rewarded in 1967, when the Library of Congress accepted his proposal to organize a group of volunteers to read books aloud and to be recorded. In response to community need, the radio broadcasting was launched in the late 70's. Descriptive services were added in 1992.
