Queensland Narrating Service is a not-for-profit organisation based in Brisbane, Australia. It is membership-based and has around 50 active members. Members are volunteer narrators who read and record books and other materials onto computer or cassette. QNS audio materials are for people who have print disabilities. All enquiries are welcome. We welcome interest from prospective narrators and office volunteers.
QNS produces two audio book catalogues per year for libraries to select titles to purchase. QNS Audio books are being uploaded to our online catalogue all the time.
Queensland Narrating Service is a non-profit community organisation that enables people to exercise their right to access desired information in audio formats and so enables them to enrich their lives and participate in decisions that affect them. We use skilled and motivated volunteers and staff to precisely convert print material into various media with due consideration for consumers’ special needs. Modern technology and systems are utilised to provide a high quality, cost effective service. Consumer service is our highest priority. We operate in a fair and responsible manner in our dealings with volunteers, staff, funding providers, print-disabled agencies and the broader community.
