Established in 1929, the British Wireless for the Blind Fund has made information and entertainment available, through accessible technology, to thousands in the UK.
The privately funded organization offers digital radios such as the DUET 2 and the CONCERTO 2. And for those who are connected to the internet, the SONATA PLUS internet audio player is also an option. Dave spoke to Simon Parsons about the history, and how fun it is to look to the future, of the Fund. For more information about purchasing a device, or to see if you qualify for a free player, visit the Fund's website. Or contact them by telephone at 0162 275 4757.
