Radio stations are run by computers these days and I assist with computers and office equipment at Triangle radio Reading Service. I have been a volunteer since 2005 and this is my way of giving back to the community. Volunteer work at a radio station is different from the normal computer work I do during the day and a exciting challenge which also helps people.

TRRS works to keep people with a print disability informed about current local events. Even if you don't have the time to sit beside a radio to hear the news, you can still stay up-to-date. Just download the readings you wish to hear from the internet and put them onto your MP-3 player or i-pod. How cool is that?!? And they are read by a human voice, not one from a text-to-speech synthesizer.
