About

Gatewave is a round-the-clock radio service that brings information and entertainment to listeners who are blind, visually impaired, or reading disabled. We’re seeking additional volunteers with experience editing digital audio to assemble at least one hour of programming each week, at their own location, on their own equipment.

You’ll download new spoken-word segments each week and edit them together in a standard format with an open, midbreak, and close. You’ll check for problems, conform levels, bring the show to time, export it as an mp3 file, then upload to our server before the weekly deadline.

We'll expect you to be available most weeks, but with a little advance notice we'll arrange for an occasional substitute.

You’ll be part of a caring team that's making a big difference in the lives of our listeners!
