NPR Transcripts with Audio in eLibrary

If you have done much searching in eLibrary, you probably knowtranscripts icon that there are eight media types available and that one of these is transcripts. Our collection of transcripts includes material from TV, radio, congressional hearings and other great sources, and among the best is the news, commentary, interviews and arts content from National Public Radio. The kicker is that most of the NPR transcripts have an embedded audio player that allows you to hear the original audio. This is a great way to have a more immersive experience and to feel the power of the spoken word in context.

The NPR programs that include embedded audio are:
