Audio Information Network of Colorado

AINColorado is a 501 (c) 3 on-the-air broadcast, volunteer driven service, that provides access to printed material to blind, visually impaired and print handicapped Coloradoans.

Volunteers can read and record various Colorado newspapers, magazines, shopping ads, and any vital information that is otherwise unavailable to the print disabled members of our community.

Volunteer readers are trained to be the best they can be in delivering spoken content, and to ensure this we provide training and support to our volunteers. Program assignments take into account a volunteer’s regular availability, and programming needs. Program recording sessions typically last between 45 to 90 minutes. Most volunteers start with one assigned program per week. Volunteer Buddies will receive training, resources and constant support from AINC staff throughout the program.
