Infosound

Infosound is broadcasting news and information around the clock - all day, everyday.  Just listen-in whenever you like.  Infosound is a

frequently-updated blend of audio features on a broad range of sight loss-related subjects, shorter briefings about events and services,

often from one region of Great Britain, vision-impaired listeners' own comments, hints, tips and items of information and occasional music.

Throughout the day, you'll hear a general mix of items, interspersed with a little music.  But, from time to time, we have specific "slots"

where you can hear particular types of information.

There are more details here about the Infosound broadcast content and schedule.
