Your article (Listen up: how to access audiobooks for less – or even for free, 14 May) missed out the charity Calibre Audio, which provides audiobooks for free if you have sight loss, dyslexia or other conditions, such as Parkinson’s or multiple sclerosis, that might make reading difficult. They have over 15,000 books, including for all the key stages for children. Each year they add to their collection with both commercial and their own recordings.

They also run book groups, both in person and via the telephone. The actor Terrence Hardiman, (Obituary, 10 May) was a volunteer narrator for Calibre over many years and recorded at least 192 books for them. As a volunteer checker, I miss his professionalism, knowing that I could enjoy the book as he rarely made mistakes. He is sadly missed.
