[Milton-L] recordings for blind and dyslexic

At the beginning of the semester I asked about recordings of PL for a 
severely dyslexic student of mine.
We ordered several versions (and our library had the first four books 
on cassette tape, read by Anthony Quayle!  My student used Anton 
Lesser's recording (on Naxos, which apparently has a series, "Great 
Epics"--it does say "abridged," but he read along in his book) and 
found it so helpful that I am strongly considering requiring all of 
my students to listen to portions of the poem when I teach it next.

Thank you to everyone for advice and suggestions.--Margie
