Welcome to Infosound

We are an independent registered charity that produces and distributes free and relevant

information, in audio, for the benefit of vision-impaired (that is, blind and partially-sighted)

people across Great Britain. We are a non-commercial, editorially-impartial public service,

funded entirely by voluntary donation.


This web site is designed to be an accessible resource for vision-impaired computer, tablet and smart-phone users; and on

this site you can:

We aim to make everything we produce directly relevant to those with vision-impairment.  The information we produce is all in

audio and covers topics about the everyday practicalities of 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 also carry details of events and one-off services run for the benefit of blind and partially-

sighted people and we welcome contributions from vision-impaired people, who want to phone us to share their experiences,

hints, tips and opinions.  And all of this makes up the mix of information, news and comment that is Infosound.


We produce audio articles on all these subjects and present them for listening-to on demand in our free and accessible audio

library of information, which can be browsed and navigated and explored in a variety of ways on different delivery platforms.

And however you choose to listen to us, you will always be offered exactly the same selection of audio features to browse,

select and hear, as and when you want to listen.


The whole Infosound audio library of information can be heard:

on this web site

on any standard landline or mobile phone

on the Sonata Internet audio players

on the Bumblebee tablet app

in our podcast

and every time a new audio article is places into the library, we announce it on Twitter.



Separately, we also make a selection of our audio articles freely available to Britain's professionals and volunteers who

provide services and support for those who live with sight loss, most notably talking newspapers and

magazines and others who provide information services for vision-impaired people.  More information

and our promotional resources can be found in the Infosound Audio Support section of this web site and

on its associated Facebook page.
