    I thought it might be interesting to point out that in the US our
    law says that it is not an infringement of copyright law to provide the
    published work in an accessible format.  In particular, I am referencing
    section 121 which was added to our copyright code in September 1996
    Public Law 104-197, 110 Stat. 2394, 2416.

         Interesting...Then, why do RFBD and the like have to do their stuff
  with special equipment and such? (RFBD does their tapes on 2-track
  instead of more common 4-track.)
