At our studio in Friendship Heights, we are seeking detail-oriented volunteers as new readers and recording session directors to record our textbooks. Our most immediate needs are for specialists in the fields of biology, medicine and physiology at the college level, computer use and programming. We also need general subject area readers and checkers (volunteers who provide quality control for our recordings). These volunteers will be trained in digital audio editing. Administrative volunteers to assist staff in preparing mailings for fundraising and volunteer programs, data entry, answering phones and general office work are also welcome. A commitment of two hours a week for at least one year is required.
