The question of “how to get our content to our listeners” confronts all radio organizations these days, as they pick their way through the strategic implications of new media, digital technology and other channels. Radio reading services face those same questions, as they try to reach a highly targeted audience.
Planning is underway for the annual conference of the International Association of Audio Information Services, to be held this year in Cincinnati, in cooperation with Cincinnati Radio Reading Services and the Cincinnati Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired.
Workshops are planned on topics such as training volunteers, the future of the radio reading service listener, Web harvesting and grant writing.
A demonstration of the Dice Electronics Digital Radio Receiver/Digital Radio and discussion of alternative delivery systems are also planned.
The IAAIS conference is June 3–7 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Cincinnati.
