Welcome to Infosound

Infosound is an independent registered charity that produces and distributes free and relevant

information, in audio, that may be of interest to 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 a fully-accessible information resource for blind and partially-sighted computer-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 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 briefings 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 share their experiences, hints, tips and opinions. 

We have recently introduced Infosound Select, which is a roundup of our

latest audio features on a mixture of topics. Infosound Select can currently

be heard on this web site and as a podcast, which can be automatically

delivered to any computer, tablet or smart mobile phone as soon as a new

audio features has been produced.

We also make have a browsable audio library of information, which can be

heard in a number of different ways and on various audio-playing devices,

including standard landline telephones, computers, tablets, smart mobile

phones and several specially-designed audio players.

Here we have more information about listening to the Infosound audio library.

Just like in any library, each audio item is placed into its relevant category section, depending on what it is about.  As newer

features are put into a section, older articles are retired; in this way, the library is kept constantly refreshed.

And the moment an item has been produced it is also placed into the Library Latest section, making this a quick reference for

those who just want to hear the more recent additions to the library without browsing each section. Every time a new audio

article is places into the library, we also announce it on Twitter.

The library has six main category sections:

Products section - covering daily-living devices, aids and adaptations.

Support section - covering services offering help, information and advice, as well as health and wellbeing information.

Mobility section - covering getting about, transport and travel issues.

Finance section - covering consumer issues, money, benefits, employment and training.

Leisure section - covering holidays, sport and hobbies as well as social groups and organisations.

News section - covering events, one-off services and issues affecting vision-impaired people.

And we have our Audio Noticeboard, where library visitors can post their own messages for others to hear.

Infosound Charity Support
Separately, we also offer audio material for British vision-impairment-related charities to use in their own audio
publications, audio information services and programmes.  We also provide information and promotional
material about the Infosound service to pass on to blind and partially-sighted clients.
Infosound Charity Support is primarily for British talking newspapers and magazines, local sight loss charities, information
services, radio stations and any other charity or not-for-profit organisation providing services for vision-impaired people.
It is separate from our information service for blind and partially-sighted members of the general public.
