in 1982, Indiana Reading and Information
Services (IRIS) is an around-the-clock
communications link for the print-impaired.
Persons who cannot read normal
print due to blindness, low vision, physical
impairments, learning disorders or illiteracy
keep in touch with local news and information
as presented by IRIS volunteer readers.
Every day, IRIS broadcasts
the regional newspapers and many other Indianapolis
publications. Listeners are provided with
special radio receivers FREE of charge
to use as long as they are needed. One must
live within 45 miles of Indianapolis to
receive the broadcasts and there is an application
requiring medical or social certification
of print impairment.
for IRIS comes from the Cable Franchise Board/City
of Indianapolis, Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable
Trust, Guidant and an annual membership effort.
