MindsEye helps people who cannot read the printed word, including the blind and those with extremely low vision because of macular degeneration, cataracts or glaucoma, among other conditions. The organization provides recordings of newspapers and magazines. More than 180 volunteers record material that is then broadcasted to special radios distributed by MindsEye 24 hours a day. There also is a podcast on the organization’s website, www.mindseyeradio.org.
