"speaking" books by itself. The services for unseeing people are provided with
provision of conditions of the vision and psychology's of perception of different
groups of readers.
For this purpose different facilities are used (the speech, music,

musicians, аnd medical workmen.

make the electronic base of legal and normative documents for the unseeing.
