LITERACY BRIDGE: THE TALKING BOOK
Literacy Bridge–a non-profit initiative dedicated to empowering disenfranchised communities with the tools of information and literacy–has recently developed The Talking Book, a simple, durable and impressive audio device that is catapulting their altruistic mission. Here's how the device works: experts record valuable information and ideas onto "the book," then it is distributed to teachers and members of the community so that it spreads and becomes accessible even to listeners who cannot read. The device can "connect" to other devices and copy or exchange information, it can record on command and it can store up to 140 hours of audio regarding health, agriculture and community news! Knowledge is power.
