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.


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 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 share their experiences, hints, tips and opinions. 


This mix of information, news and comment is Infosound; and it is presented in the

form of an audio library of information.  The whole library 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 article (as we call them) 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 update the Infosound podcast and 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.


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:

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 the Infosound Audio Library information service for blind and partially-sighted members of the general public.
