Infosound comprises a round-the-clock broadcast that you can listen to whenever you like and an on-demand service, Infosound Select,

which enables you to choose which individual audio items you want to hear, again whenever it suits you.  You can access both services

below on this page. On a separate page you can find out about all the different ways to listen to Infosound.


Infosound broadcast

Infosound is broadcasting news and information around the clock - all day, everyday.  Just listen-in whenever you like.  Infosound is a

frequently-updated blend of audio features on a broad range of sight loss-related subjects, shorter briefings about events and services,

often from one region of Great Britain, vision-impaired listeners' own comments, hints, tips and items of information and some music.

Throughout the day, you'll hear a general mix of items, interspersed with music.  But, from time to time, we have specific "slots" where you

can hear particular types of information.

There are more details here about the Infosound broadcast content and schedule.
