We produce a free monthly magazine of information on
standard audio CD in two versions - one for the the whole of
England and one for the Greater London area. The version a
listener receives depends on where they live and the CD can be kept for
future reference. The magazine mixes audio features about products and
services with general support information and listener contributions.
The main features that appear in both versions of the
monthly audio magazine, as well as some other audio articles,
can be heard individually according to a listener's interests. This
selection, which reflects the same broad range of subject-matter as the
magazines, can be heard on this web site, on the Sonata Internet audio
players and in the Infosound podcast.
This is a frequently-updated compilation of short general
information items about support services for vision-impaired
people, details of events run specifically for blind and partially-
sighted people and, importantly, listeners' own comments, hints, tips,
observations and opinions on any topic related to living with sight loss.
information for the benefit of vision-impaired (blind and partially-sighted) people across England and beyond. We are a non-
commercial, apolitical and editorially-impartial public service, funded solely by voluntary donation.
The news and information we produce is all in audio and covers topics about the everyday practicalities faced by someone
living with sight loss, such as daily-living aids and products, benefits, holidays, mobility, travel, housing, employment, training,
leisure, sport, money, consumer matters, hobbies and the important issues of the moment.
We aim to make everything we produce directly relevant to those with
vision-impairment across England and elsewhere. We offer three distinct
services to reflect different listening preferences and interests:
Separately, we support talking newspapers and magazines, as well as radio stations and other information
providers that disseminate information about living with sight loss to their vision-impaired listeners.
We make a frequently-refreshed selection of our audio articles freely available to them to download and
use in their own audio publications or programmes.
And we keep vision-impairment sector staff and volunteers, health care
professionals and others up-to-date with what we are doing on our online
resources to help promote the various free Infosound information
services are available to download and share.
As well as distributing on CD
and in various ways online,
we also tweet news and information.
