Consider AudioBook Ministries in your end-of-year giving. I've been volunteering with them since 2007. Not only did we get the digital conversion done, but we're adding children's books to our free library serving people who cannot use print.

Please consider AudioBook Ministries in your year-end giving today. We slogged our way through the digital conversion. It's amazing how much has been done on a shoe-string budget. Now we need friends to champion our cause. Give. Share. Pray. Thanks!

Professors are always scanning articles and sending them to students as PDFs, which is completely inaccessible to students using screen-reading software.

Now with Google Drive, Chrome, and Docs you can easily convert those articles to text for FREE. No more running to student services or using expensive OCR software.

Check out the steps in my blog. Thanks to Dr. Denise M. Robinson for this really useful tip.
