About Us


Infosound's mission has always been "to inform and to explain" and our core aim is to share information, knowledge, experience and opinion for the benefit of vision-impaired people. Some of our team have been doing this professionally and, now in a voluntary capacity, for over thirty years and we want to share what we have learned along the way with charities and others wanting to support those who live with sight loss.


Our work


To date, we have worked with, and supported, other charities within the vision-impairment sector, such at the Partially Sighted Society, the Talking News Federation, British Wireless for the Blind Fund and the RNIB.


This work has included the setting-up of a UK-wide information service on a broad range of topics relating to living with sight loss, providing the voices for information service menus and for talking products and producing audio features for distribution across the UK. We have also provided training sessions at conferences, at charity venues and online over the years with an aim to improving information provision.

We operate under the terms of our charitable Constitutionour privacy policy (we are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office under the terms of the General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR) and our safeguarding policy.
