Infosound comprises a broad mix of audio features about products, services and issues affecting everyday living with sight
loss in Britain.  And these are mixed-in with diary events and general briefings of news and information as well as listeners'
own comments, hints, tips and items of information.

Infosound is kept frequently updated and refreshed with new material; so it could be worth listening every few days as a new
item may well have been added.  Similalrly the Infosound London bulletin is also updated frequently.

There are several different ways to listen to Infosound, but the content of Infosound at any one time will always be the same,
however you choose to listen.  The current Infosound can be heard further down this web page, in our podcast and on the
Sonata Internet audio players.  Many of these audio articles are also announced on Twitter and placed into the monthly
Infosound compilation on CD.

In total, Infosound lasts for about an hour but you can listen individually to each item it contains.  Inevitably, some subjects will
be of more interest and relevance to you than others, depending on where you live, your interests, mobility and age.

Please feel free to browse the audio items in this current selection by title and listen to what you want.  In each case the title,
which will always aim to describe what the article is about, is the link to play the audio feature.
