Audio Information Network of Colorado
October 31, 2010
Radio Reading Service of the Rockies, now called the Audio Information Network of Colorado (AINC) is a free 24/7 audio broadcasting service located in Boulder to serve Colorado’s blind, visually impaired and print disabled residents. I have been a volunteer for over two years. AINC records and broadcasts audio recordings of materials that are usually not available in audio format including over 100 regional and local newspapers, magazines, job listings, discount grocery ads and coupons, children’s programming and Spanish programming via live streaming, special transmitter, podcasts and phone. The programming is like a continually updated 24/7 audio library for the blind and visually-impaired and print-handicapped people so they too can listen, learn and connect to the same information that sighted-people have access to.

If AINC could have access to more funding, then they would be able to continue to provide this life-changing service.
Volunteer & I am a volunteer and I read and record the discount ads in the Sunday paper's inserts including the coupons, grocery ads an department store ads.
