Access to Information and Empowering Services for the Blind

Welcome to the Audio Information Network of Colorado, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing audio access to print information and empowering services for blind, low vision, or individuals that need an alternative to print across Colorado.

What We Do:

  • Produce and broadcast audio recordings of newspapers, magazines, and other printed materials in English and Spanish.
  • Create original podcasts specifically for the blind, covering a wide range of topics and interests.
  • Provide free access to our programming through a variety of distribution channels, including radio broadcasts, streaming services, and digital downloads. We offer free listening equipment to help listeners access our programming with ease.
  • Offer support groups to connect individuals and provide a sense of community and support.
  • Host empowering events that bring together blind and low vision individuals to learn new skills, network, and connect with one another.

Our mission:

Provide news and information in audio format for Coloradans who are blind, have low vision, or need alternatives to print.

Our purpose is to offer connection. We connect people with voices that understand and heal, with tools that offer self sufficiency, with news that informs and educates, with events that empower, and with stories that entertain.
