Audiotape

Bookstores and libraries now have entire sections devoted to books on tape (audiotaped versions of printed materials either in full-length or condensed forms). Originally, taped books were created for people with visual impairments or reading difficulties. Gradually, a market developed for busy people who want to “read” as they commute, paint the bedroom, exercise, or mow the grass. Audiotape has become a real alternative to print for many people.

Advantages of Audiotape

Great for auditory learners

Helps fill commute time

You can listen to a “book” and still be mobile

Provides an alternative to reading for those who don’t like to read or have trouble reading

With the instructor’s permission, you can use a tape recorder to capture entire lectures to review as you commute or work around the house. (This is a very time-consuming way to review and should be used only when lectures are too difficult to summarize in the form of good comprehensive notes.)
