This is the 'Listen' page of the Infosound web site

This is where you can listen to all our current news and information. Just use any link that says 'listen' to start the audio playing or downloading (this will depend on how your computer, tablet or smart phone is set up). With each article we'll say how long it lasts, the date on which it was produced and, in most cases, we give a direct link to where you can find further information about the subject online. We also indicate if an article is featured in this week's Infosound Briefing compilation or this month's Infosound Despatch audio magazine on CD.

We are also now piloting a news and information service specifically for blind and partially-sighted people living in London.
We would be interested to hear whether this service is useful to you. visit Infosound LONDON

If you visit our Index section you'll be able to hear older items that we no longer consider current but which may be of interest just for reference.
