Hi, I'm Vikki Vaughan and today we'll learn how to transfer a BARD book to a portable cartridge. This workshop is intended for users with low vision. If you use a screen-reading program, be sure to check out our screen-reading version of this workshop. In another Hadley workshop in this series, we learned how to download a BARD book to our computer.
Today we'll take the next step and transfer our book to a portable storage device. This important step allows us to listen to our BARD book on the NLS digital talking book player. For today's demonstration, we'll transfer our book to an NLS cartridge. We can also use a USB or flash drive to store our digital books. The first thing we'll do is locate our digital book folder. My folder is in the Downloads folder. Your digital book folder might be on your desktop or some other location.
Ed: Now that you've had a chance to learn a bit with us, we'd like to learn more about you. Your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley, and your relationship to vision loss. Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don't worry, everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course, if you'd prefer to talk through these questions, we're just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off and track your progress every time you log on. Plus, it connects you to the Hadley community and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge. And last, but not least, it gives you direct access to experts, like me. Now, where were we?
