Mission Statement

To enrich and enhance the lives of blind and print handicapped residents of Iowa by providing a free service that brings them timely and topical printed information by radio, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

Description

The Iowa Radio Reading Information Service for the Blind and Print Handicapped, Inc. (IRIS) exists to bring the world of information to Iowans who cannot read the printed word because of a visual or physical impairment or learning disability.

Every day of the year, dedicated IRIS volunteers in eight locations across Iowa sit in front of an IRIS microphone and read aloud from that community's local newspaper.

In addition to local newspapers, IRIS provides readings of grocery ads, community event information, news specific to vision loss, medical information, outdoor interests, and many other publications. Daily programming also includes readings from national publications such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, and others.
