SPN Special: An Audio Tour from the American Printing House for the Blind

Listen to An Audio Tour from the American Printing House for the Blind

All who regularly listen to the SeroTalk Podcast Network have come to expect extensive convention coverage each summer. This year, we went the extra mile and brought back something extra special from this year’s ACB convention. Jamie Pauls had the privilege of touring the American Printing House for the Blind with museum director Mike Hudson. Not only did Jamie take the tour, but he recorded the event. The result is over 90 minutes of audio that will take you from the 19th century to the present day and even into the future. The only way this experience could be any better is if you were there yourself. If you ever get the chance, we urge you to take the APH Factory and Museum tour in person. You won’t regret it!

    I live in Louisville, Kentucky, and worked at APH backk in the early 1980’s in the section where the Braille books were assembled. Wow, did the sound of those Braille presses running bring back memories.

    I’ve listened to NLS talking books nearly alll my life, as I am visually impaired. I remember the records, the flexible disks, the cassettes, all of it.

    I went to school right next door at the Kentucky School for the Blind, where I learned to read Braille in high school, and used many Braille and large-print textbooks produced there at APH.

    I’d just like to complement Jamie on such a wonderful podcast. The sound quality was truly high definition, as I felt at times that I could reach out and touch the items being described myself. Thanks to Mike Hudson also for such an awesome tour.

    Maybe I’ll actually go down there and take the tour in person some time, but I already feel like I’ve been there.

    Thanks so much to everyone at Serotek for producing such quality podcasts
