Audio Reading Service


As a department of the Allen County Public Library, the Audio Reading Service is primarily designed for, and directed to, people who have a visual or reading impairment, including any individual who is unable to read conventional printed material because of blindness, low-vision, a literacy issue, or a physical impairment which makes it difficult to hold a book or turn pages such as stroke, MS, Parkinson’s or arthritis.


About

 


We broadcast in a fifty-mile radius from Fort Wayne over a sub-channel frequency provided, at cost, by WBCL FM. A special SCA radio is needed to hear this broadcast. The radio is loaned to individuals from the Allen County Public Library at no cost. An application is needed to acquire the SCA radio. Please see the side bar on the right to download an application or call the department at 260.421.1376 and an application will be mailed.


The Audio Reading Service can also be heard over an alternative language setting on PBS 39.4. Audio Reading Service is available on free Apps for mobile devices through iBlink which is committed to accessibility for visually impaired people.  We also stream the broadcast well as provide podcasts of our programs.
