Talking Book Program




Throughout Texas, children with disabilities that prevent them from reading standard print are enjoying the world of reading through the Talking Book Program (TBP).

The TBP is a FREE service that allows students with a reading disability, like dyslexia, the opportunity to read. The TBP offers more than 125,000 titles and 80 plus magazines, all read with human narration. Materials can be downloaded via the Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) Mobile app, on a smartphone or tablet.

The program is completely free, with no charges and no overdue fees. For more information, visit www.tsl.texas.gov/tbp/reading_disabilities, email tbp.services@tsl.texas.gov or call 1-800-252-9605. The TBP staff will be happy to answer questions and help parents apply for service. If your child has not been identified as having a reading disability, please be aware that Katy ISD offers audio books for secondary students through Sora eBook/Audiobooks. Contact your child’s campus for more information about this audiobook program.
