There are many audio reading systems to help blind persons to read the texts. The reading system alone is not enough to help blind persons. This paper aims to design and implement a book recommendation and meaning system which appended to an audio reading system that was proposed previously. This book recommendation system is based on the book title that the blind person reads. In addition, the meaning system is used to get the meaning of the most frequent word in the text that is read. Since the proposed system is utilized by blind persons, it uses text-to-speech tools to convert the result into audio.
