Welcome to Infosound

We are an independent registered charity that produces and distributes free and relevant

information, in audio, for the benefit of 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.


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 information, news and comment that is Infosound.

We are in the process of making significant changes (we think they're improvements) to the way we can deliver information to

blind and partially-sighted people in a variety of different, and accessible, ways.  And however you choose to listen to us, you

should always be offered exactly the same selection of audio features to browse through, select and hear, as and when you

want to listen.


Infosound can currently be heard:

on any standard landline or mobile phone

Separately, we also make a selection of our audio articles freely available to Britain's professionals and volunteers who

provide services and support for those who live with sight loss, most notably talking newspapers and

magazines and others who provide information services for vision-impaired people.  More information

and promotional resources can be found in the Infosound Audio Support section of this web site and on its

associated Facebook page.
