There are lots of Talking Books or audiobooks available to help you better adjust to and cope with your vision loss. You can find books about your visual condition and biographies about people just like you who have gone through similar vision loss experience and learned how to live independently, be productive, and enjoy life—otherwise, they would not have a book.
