Reading To People Who Are Blind For Over
For over 35 years, people throughout Western New York and Southern Ontario have read newspapers, books, magazines, and other printed materials for people who are blind or cannot read for any reason. The volunteers spend a couple hours a week recording from their homes or any quiet space of their choosing. Their recordings are then made available online or over the air through a special receiver and are listened to by anyone who cannot read. Many listeners feel that this is an integral part of their day. It is the only way they can hear of their local news, advertisements, or even obituaries. They also enjoy listening to a favorite book or magazine. The volunteers love reading aloud for them and imagine they are reading to a loved one sitting next to them. Among the publications read through the service is The Post-Journal. Anyone interested in participating can visit nfradioreading.org or call 716-821-5555.
