“There are so many great organizations out there waiting to help people who have lost their vision. I’m glad MindsEye makes a point of connecting listeners to them.” - Rita, retired accessibility instructor

Celebrate Service: National Volunteer Week







The heart of MindsEye is its volunteers. The people that come in to read and record newspapers and magazines are the voices, the friends of the listeners. These phenomenal volunteers connect individuals with vision loss to the news and entertainment to help them to be self-reliant. MindsEye’s group of dedicated volunteers allow us to broadcast 24/7; they come together to build a stronger, more vibrant community through their service.  


Did you know that MindsEye broadcasts books as well as newspapers and magazines? In fact, the books MindsEye airs are one of the most popular offerings!

MindsEye’s Bookworm program airs books in a serial format: one hour per day during the week and two hours over the weekend. Dedicated volunteers record these books – and their hard work has not gone unnoticed.
