Yes 'Talking Books' for the blind and otherwise visually impaired were
standard size 12-inch discs, but recorded at 16 2/3 or 8 1/3 RPM.
These have since been suprceeded by more modern media such as 1/2
speed cassettes, and a special CD format.

The ill - fated Chrysler/RCA in-car record player of the mid 1950s - 
so long as you didn't drive over any sort of bump it worked - used a 7
inch 16 2/3 RPM disc.
