Radio Talking Book Service Now Offering Audio Description
Radio Talking Book Service (RTBS) is thrilled to announce the addition of our newest service, Audio Description (AD)! From Broadway to ballet, RTBS will partner with community venues to provide equal access to programming and events through audio description services. This service empowers attendees with a visual disability to join family and friends for an exhibit, performance, or event. Then, using a headset provided by RTBS, they listen to a trained audio describer relate the visual information in real time. This can include costumes and sets, artwork, the antics of a team’s mascot, animals in a zoo habitat, the spectacle of a parade, and so much more! RTBS has an amazing team of describers ready to make arts and culture available for everyone.
RTBS is a nonprofit radio station that broadcasts print information across Nebraska and southwest Iowa to blind, low vision, or print impaired listeners.
