Hello and welcome to Infosound.
We are a UK-wide registered charity that produces free information, in audio, for vision-impaired (blind and partially-sighted) people on subjects that directly affect living with sight loss.
We are non-commercial, non-political and editorially impartial. Our core aim is to share information, knowledge, experience and opinion.
We are delighted that information services across the UK, such as talking newspapers, talking magazines and radio stations, are major carriers of the audio material that we produce. And we know that support professionals for vision-impaired people also listen to the information that we produce.
On this web site, which is designed specifically for vision-impaired people:
We outline the different ways to listen to the information we produce - here online, on audio CD, on an Internet audio player, on a mobile phone, on Twitter and Facebook as well as via talking newspapers and magazines, on radio stations and on other information providers.
We present our Audio Messageboard, that enables blind and partially-sighted people to share comments, opinions, tips and experiences about living with sight loss by simply phoning in and postings their message for others to hear.
We explain more about Infosound and how, and why, we produce information in audio for blind and partially-sighted people in the UK. We talk about our editorial code of practice and mention ways in which our work can be, and is, supported.
Separately, we provide a dedicated Media Support Service for UK talking newspaper groups, radio stations and any other public-service information providers by offering free audio content that can be downloaded for use in their audio publications and radio programmes.
