Radio for the blind and print-disabled

The Audio-Reader Network is a reading and information service for blind, visually impaired, and print disabled individuals in Kansas and western Missouri. We read daily newspapers, magazines and best-selling books on the air and on the internet, 24 hours a day, and we offer automated newspaper readings by telephone. Services are offered free of charge to anyone in our listening area who is unable to read normal printed material.

Audio-Reader offers print-disabled persons the opportunity for greater personal independence by providing access to the printed word and visual information, via electronic media and other technologies.
