NLS has produced several tutorial videos featuring the BARD Mobile application for Android devices. The BARD Mobile Android How-to Series videos are available from the Library of Congress channel on YouTube at : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3rn1g0s-XM&list=PLpAGnumt6iV7Aap_-C8b-8pR_HCxnh_Ls.
In the videos, Consumer Relations Officer Judith Dixon provides instruction on how to read an audiobook, navigate an audiobook, manage downloads, and use basic gestures with TalkBack, the Android screen reader service.
This is to remind all BARD subscribers that there should be only one BARD account per person. Multiple accounts for the same subscriber are causing problems in the BARD database. This may cause downloading to be slower and more difficult. If you move, get a new email address, or make any other changes, please contact us. We will assist you in making the changes to your existing BARD account. Even if you move to another state, your BARD account follows you to the new location. So just let your new library know that you already have a BARD account and would like your account to move with you.
