Notes about the Maine Starter Program

March 31st, 2011 No comments

Thanks to our presenters from Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic (RFB&D) for giving us a tour of their service, as well as outlining the details of the Maine Starter Program. This service will improve access to human-narrated audio books, including textbooks, for Maine students with print disabilities. The program includes:

  • A full access landing page for Maine
  • One level 3 membership for the state, which includes 100 books
  • 25 licenses for RFB&D ReadHear for Mac by gh
  • 5 training webinars
  • 1 professional development webinar

Please be sure to watch the recording to learn the details of the program (should be available sometime on 3/31). Contacts for more information include Jenn Dougherty (jdougherty@rfbd.org) and Jayme Cagliuso (jcagliuso@rfbd.org). Jenn and Jayme welcome feedback on the program and how to support the unique needs of your school.
