Welcome to Infosound
and information, in audio, for the benefit of vision-impaired (that is, blind and partially-sighted)
people across Great Britain. We are a non-commercial, apolitical and editorially-impartial public
service, funded solely by voluntary donation.
This web site is designed to be an accessible resource for vision-impaired computer, tablet and smart-phone 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 is all in
audio and 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 details 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 phone us to share their experiences, hints, tips and opinions.
And all of this makes up the mix of news and information that is Infosound. Infosound is frequently refreshed with new
information as older items are retired. Infosound usually lasts for about an hour, but each item it contains can be heard
individually, however you choose to listen to us.
Infosound can be heard:
We also produce a roughly 15-minute bulletin of news and information specifically for blind and partially-sighted people living
in the Greater London region. Infosound London contains a frequently-updated variety of short information briefings about
support services and events specfic to the Greater London boroughs and elsewhere inside the M25 orbital motorway.
Separately, we run the Infosound Audio support service for Britain's professionals and volunteers who provide services
and support for those who live with sight loss and who may wish to use our audio material in the work that they do or who
would just like to get hold of material about us that they can share with their vison-impaired clients.
