Listening to the radio is one of those day to day activities that everyone would expect to be able to do easily. People listen to the radio for news, music, sport, entertainment, education and more.  Radio has been around in Britain since the 1920s, but the way we listen to radio has changed considerably in the last 10 years or so. The purpose of this event is to highlight the ways in which we listen to radio and to look at the accessibility of the various kinds of radios available to us nowadays. 

The equipment demonstrated will generally be capable of more than just radio reception, but the radio capabilities will be emphasised during this event.

Smart Speakers from Amazon and Google will be demonstrated as well as equipment from Wireless for the Blind and devices such as In your Pocket and the Victor Stream, which are specifically designed for people with visual impairments.

Attendees are also encouraged to bring along their own preferred devices for listening to the radio, and there will be time to discuss these devices with the group.

There is a maximum of 10 attendees for this event so that everyone gets a chance to have a good look at the equipment being demonstrated, as well as time to ask questions. Booking is therefore essential. You can book your place by contacting the office on 0203 6976464 or myself on 07779441000, or emailing on: [email protected]
