A few summers ago before I got involved on the air at WMNF as a DJ and reporter, I'd trek up to USF once a week to sit in a little booth for an hour to read magazines, tv listings, and other local publications aloud. My recorded reading was then broadcast out to special radios in the homes of the visually impaired.
Earlier this summer, I received an email from the same folks I worked with at WUSF, telling me about TBPAC's new service for the blind - audio description. I applied and endured lots of training to get the skill down just right. SPT's reporter John Fleming followed us around during our training and reported on it here.
