The Digital Talking Book

In 2002, the standard for Digital Talking Books (DTBs) was developed and approved by the Library of Congress, AFB, and other committee members. The following year AFB began producing all of its Talking Books digitally for the Library of Congress. In 2007, AFB's Talking Book Productions produced more than 500 titles for the National Library Service and other publishers.
