IRIS Delivers Access To Information
IRIS is a free radio reading service that reads print information aloud to over 11,000 print-disabled listeners throughout Iowa. In normal times, volunteers in 7 locations sit down in front of an IRIS microphone and read aloud from their local newspapers each day. The readings are heard on custom receivers that are provided to our listeners at no cost to them. When COVID shut the world down, our volunteers started recording the newspapers from their homes.
Because of these beautiful volunteer Voices of IRIS, our listeners didn’t miss a day.
We changed our program schedule to get as many newspaper readings on as many platforms as possible.
