About Infosound
the public Infosound web site

Infosound Media is our “behind-the-scenes” support service for talking newspapers/magazines, local sight loss charities, some radio stations and other not-for-profit information-providers. The aim is to share our most recently-produced audio features with others providing free public service information for blind and partially-sighted people.

 

These individual items, all of which focus on practical aspects of living with sight loss and which are relevant to the whole of Great Britain, do not have identifying Infosound ‘jingles’ front and back so they can sound home-grown.  We do not expect to be credited as the source of the material. For us, the important thing is not where the information has come from, but where it is going to.

 

The only four stipulations for using our original audio material are that:

•  audio items may only be downloaded from this web page,

•  audio items must be heard by your listeners exactly as downloaded from us, without being altered in any way,

•  audio items may only be heard by your listeners between the dates given with each item's title,

•  all music is copyright and may not be extracted from any audio item and used elsewhere.

Otherwise, you may present it in whatever way suits you best.

 

All current content is available to download from this web page; but it can also be delivered automatically to your computer, tablet or smart mobile phone via the Infosound Media podcast/RSS feed/XML file:

 

                                          Its URL, or ‘address’, is http://www.infosound.org.uk/media.xml 

 

Once this URL has been pasted into suitable pod-catching software (or some browsers) it will automatically “know” where to find us and will respond the moment we have produced a new audio feature for you to hear and download.

Current Audio Downloads

 

Because of changing circumstances surrounding the UK's response to the pandemic, we would strongly advise referring to this page before broadcasting or distributing any item you may already have downloaded from us, just to check it is still "in date". Re-assessed dates are highlighted in red.

Where a new VERSION number is given, please re-download to replace an earlier version of the item you may have already downloaded; it will have the same file name.

Of course, having a listen through the item to check that its content is still relevant is also recommended.
