AINC relies on our dedicated team of volunteers to read and record print materials for publication on broadcast, podcast, and other listening platforms. For those who are blind, losing vision, or can’t read for a different reason, audio programming is a vital component of staying informed, connected, and engaged.
We will provide the training and content. Volunteer readers are trained to be the best they can be in delivering spoken content and working independently from home. Volunteer readers record and submit their episodes using Audacity and our online Volunteer Portal. Most volunteer start with one weekly program, and each recording session typically lasts 1-2 hours.
In order to keep our programming high quality and professional, and to prevent volunteer frustration, all prospective volunteers must meet the following qualifications to be considered for a program.
Most volunteers start with one weekly program. (Roughly 1-2 hours per week)
The Director of Volunteer Services will have you read, record, and submit material they have prepared for you. You will be expected to follow their directions carefully in order to submit your audio audition over the internet. The volunteer coordinator will review the audition and get back to you when a program opening is available.
Program assignments take into account a volunteer’s regular availability, and programming needs.
Our content can be heard on many platforms, including over-the-air broadcast, online podcasts and streams, on Amazon Echo’s, on a call-in service, and (in some cases), on other audio reading services around the country!
