WRS is proud to be one of four contractors to produce Talking Books For The Blind for the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS) of the Library of Congress.

These books and magazines are made readily available through a provision in the U.S. copyright law and with additional permission granted by authors and publishers whose works are not specifically covered by this provision. Each year NLS selects hundreds of books and dozens of magazines and makes them available in a special cassette format that can only be played on special machines provided by the agency to qualified participants.

Anyone who is unable to access traditional printed material due to either a visual or physical impairment can qualify to receive materials through this service. Throughout the year, Talking Book Topics, an NLS publication, notifies subscribers of the latest audio releases.

WRS New England  has four recording studios located in its Burlington, MA plant.  A wide variety of books are recorded in our studios, from best sellers to classic literature and poetry.

Our voice talent are a select group of skilled professionals, with wide experience on stage, on the radio, and on television. Many have extensive knowledge of foreign languages, and specialize in dialects or particular accents from around the world. Most have honed their skills through years of reading for WRS, and have recorded hundreds of titles.

WRS' continued participation in the NLS program is both a privilege and a profound responsibility. As a producer and contractor, we are honored to participate in this program and we are grateful to have had the opportunity to add to the intellectual and aesthetic wealth of this national treasure.
