Are you a bookworm, but you can’t read two-dimensional ink-drawn pictographs on parchment (print)? Can’t hold a physical book and/or turn its pages? Need large print, Braille or audio?  Pushing Limits has an answer for you!

The Braille and Talking Book Library (BTBL) is a state-run free program for people with print disabilities. It’s part of a nation-wide network of such programs across the country.  Michael Marlin, BTBL’s director, joins us this week to explore the latest services and technologies for folks who can’t read “regular” print.
