The Internet Radio Information System receiver is from Netherlands-based Solutions Radio. It allows blind or visually impaired people to listen to audio books, newspapers and magazines via the Internet without a computer.
A telephone line is the only requirement. The device can also be used with Ethernet or even with a wireless connection.
The IRIS is also capable of receiving podcasts and other stored programming from a server which can be played on demand. It can receive any Internet stream from any station in the world. The box is MP3-capable and each radio has an ID number that is recognized by the streaming platform. Most software changes can be made remotely.
In the United States, Solutions Radio is represented by Talking Solutions Corp.
