Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

Satellite Radio Receivers

People with vision loss have relied extensively on the radio for news and entertainment since its very beginning. Today, satellite radio puts the listener in control of a huge variety of programs—at home or on the move and with crystal-clear reception. But how many of these radio receivers are accessible if you're experiencing vision loss? AFB TECH decided to evaluate the current state of satellite radio receivers and show how the digital-radio future could be fully accessible.
