Reading and producing content remotely has not stopped The Ledger from carrying out our mission. We have continued to serve our listeners 24/7 and are keeping them current with events in their communities.
Due to The Ledger's incredibly selfless volunteers, we have had the ability to maintain production of the most important content remotely to ensure our listeners can live community-connected, independent lives.
We also have been broadcasting messages from Commissioner D'Arcangelo, Commissioner of The Massachusetts Commission for the Blind (MCB), keeping our listeners up to speed with the operations of the MCB amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
How can The Ledger help YOU? Do you have a newspaper or printed item that you need the low vision or senior population to hear? Let The Ledger be your voice. Simply send us an email with your message to email@example.com and we will consider broadcasting it to our listeners across the Cape, Islands and South Coast, whose counties hold the most senior population in New England. As always, thank you for your support. We hope you stay healthy and safe.
The Audible Local Ledger is an affiliate of the Massachusetts Radio Reading Service, a special state-wide radio information network that provides the reading of daily newspapers, current periodicals, shopping guides, best selling books, calendars of community events, and other material previously available only in print. The Audible Local Ledger "Turns Print into Sound" and broadcasts this material over closed-circuit radio stations, cable television audio channels and on secondary audio program channels of television stations for the blind, visually impaired, and print disabled residents of Cape Cod and the Islands. Other ways to hear our broadcast include Amazon Alexa powered speakers like the Echo Dot - simply say these exact words "Alexa, play radio station Audible Local Ledger on Tune In." We are also available on mobile devices through the free Sero app - open the app, select 'Reading Services", scroll down to Massachusetts and there we are!

To bring localized reading of news and items of interest to our listening community on Cape Cod and the Islands. The Audible Local Ledger is dedicated to enabling our listeners to live their lives with the greatest possible personal independence.
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the Ledger will temporarily transition to remote reading for the next two weeks, at least through May. As we are an important adaptive technology service for the county with the most senior population in New England (Barnstable), we will continue to broadcast 24/7, but the amount of unique, locally generated content might be slightly less than normal. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Hopefully, this will only be a temporary situation.
