The Infosound Audio support service for talking newspapers and magazines, radio services and other not-for-profit organisations providing information for vision-impaired people
Infosound is an independent registered charity serving vision-impaired (blind and partially-sighted) people in England and beyond.  And this Infosound Audio
service is specifically for not-for profit and charitable organisations in the UK that provide information, in audio, for blind and partially-sighted people.

We produce and freely distribute impartial information, in audio, on subjects that may be of interest to those who live with sight loss. Editorially, we cover the whole
of England, but many of the subjects we cover may well be relevant to other parts of Great Britain and beyond.

The core of our service is the production of individual audio articles on topics relating directly to living with sight
loss, such as products, finance, leisure and holidays, mobility, health, employment and training, consumer
issues, travel, hobbies, daily-living advice and support and the issues of the moment. Below is all the current
Infosound audio material we have that can be freely downloaded and used by any eligible provider of free
information for the benefit of blind and partially-sighted people, such as talking newspapers & magazines,
community and hospital radio stations and free online information services.

Please refer to our guidelines for use (below) before downloading and using any of this audio material.  We also
suggest you read the production notices we post on this page; these are updated as and when necessary.
Thank you.

Each of our audio articles is produced as a downloadable 64Kbps or 80Kbps, 44.1KHz mp3 file. To download these files, left click on the item title.  If the audio
plays rather than downloads RIGHT click on item title and "save ... as ...".  With each feature article we give you its total duration, the date on which it was first
produced and, importantly, the date after which it should not be heard by your listeners, since its content may be out of date, inaccurate or no longer relevant. With
some items, we also mention geographic relevance.

At the foot of this page, we also offer downloadable audio trailers for the various Infosound services.  Whether or not you download and carry our individual audio in
your own audio publication or programme, we would be extremely grateful if you were able to play any, or all, of these trailers to help to make your blind and
partially-sighted listener aware of what we are able to offer them.  Thank you.

Guidelines for Use
Infosound audio material may only be used
by charitable or community-based
organisations providing information, in
audio, to blind and partially-sighted people
free of charge.  It may not be used for
commercial or promotional purposes or
associated with any form of advertising.

Only the current audio material that can be
found on the Infosound Audio downloads
web page may be downloaded. Please do
not attempt to download and use or
reproduce any material found elsewhere, be
that online, in our audio compilations and
magazines, in our podcasts or in our Twitter
postings.

Infosound audio material may not be edited,
augmented or changed in any way and
must be reproduced exactly as downloaded
and in such a way that each audio item can
be heard by the listener all the way through
and uninterrupted.

Please do not use any of the Infosound
musical theme, jingles or spoken idents in
any form unless they appear within one of
our audio features or compilations.

Please do not let any audio material from us
be heard by your listeners beyond the date
we suggest it is relevant (as given with each
audio item).

There is no need to credit Infosound as the
source of the material and we do not give
our presenters' names. However, if you do,
also mentioning those who support us -
British Wireless for the Blind Fund across
the UK and Thomas Pocklington Trust in
Greater London - would be appreciated.
We also communicate with
information providers, vision-
impairment sector health
care professionals, carers,
family members of vision-impaired people
and anyone else with an interest via the
Infosound Facebook page, where we can
also make posters and other printable
promotional material available to
download.
