Since my vision was serverely compromised as a result of a stroke, I have gegun to understand the feelings of isolation people with low vision and blindness experince. I feel honored to be asked to use my previous business and non profit board experience to help the AINC continue to achieve the goals of providing listening services as it has done for 20 years.

AINC needs nnothing more than additional revenue sources to ensure its continuity and expand its scope to all who can benefit from what it does.

This is a great service that allows listeners to connect with their local community through their local newspapers. No other service provides this to Colorado's print-disabled.

I have been involved with this organization for over 10 years. I began volunteering while I was in college and for the past 3 years have been a member of the AINC Board of Directors. AINC's committed staff and incredible volunteers all have a dedication that I have not seen in any other place that I volunteer. When the digital changeover was happening last year not many organizations saw the effect that was going to have on broadcasting information like this. They sought out, designed, engineered, and distributed new receiver boxes BEFORE THE CHANGE so that people who were not able to access the visual only menus weren't left out. They also lend their programming and technology expertise to other states so that listeners around the nation can be connected to the world that is around them. They are a forward-thinking non-profit dedicated to not just the people the serve but the big vision of providing information access to people who are visually impaired.

I have volunteered and seen the amazing community that has grown. I believe strongly in literacy, technology, and that everyone - no matter where you live, no matter how you see- has a right to be connected. The ability to have access to the news to make informed decisions is a key element of any community. Audio Information Network does that.

The only thing that I would change is people knowing more about what we do!

Radio Reading Service, now called Audio Information Network of Colorado, provides access for the blind and visually impaired to pertinent and current print media via an on-air reading service. Programs are read over the air, and free equipment is provided to the blind and visually impaired allowing access to the broadcasts. Audio Information Network of Colorado is a leader in providing audio access to print media for the blind and visually impaired, and in developing the equipment and technology for this type of service.
