The free Illinois Radio Reader service offers audio news and information from newspapers, magazines and more—and it’s not just for those who are blind or visually impaired. It’s for anyone who is considered print impaired—including individuals who have a medical condition or disability that makes it difficult to hold and/or read traditional books and magazines. It’s also for people who are home bound.
The service is also offered via web streaming and a smart phone app, in addition to the traditional reader radios.
