New Accessible Radio Set Designed for the Blind

Picture Of RNIB DAB+ And FM RadioBlind and partially sighted people can now benefit from a new accessible radio set designed for blind and partially sighted people. Created by the Royal National Institute of Blind People, the DAB+ and FM radio offers users easy-to-use tactile buttons and clear voice prompts. Blind people will also benefit from audible confirmations when buttons are pressed. What's more, the DAB+ and FM radio has a dual alarm with a snooze function, sleep timer, and supports USB, making it compatible with RNIB's Talking Book Service, giving users access to over 34,000 fiction and nonfiction books.

"We are thrilled to launch the new RNIB digital radio. It is important to RNIB that blind and partially sighted people can purchase accessible products without having to break the bank, which is why we are pleased to launch this affordable model", said RNIB Senior Retail Products Manager, Jennie Mather. "We continually review customer feedback to help us improve our products and strive to make a difference."
