Reading and producing content remotely has not stopped The Ledger from carrying out our mission. We have continued to serve our Print Impaired 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 the Cape, Islands and South Coast representative of the Massachusetts Audio Information Network or M.A.I.N., a special state-wide radio information network that provides reading to the blind and those with low vision of daily newspapers, current periodicals, shopping guides, short stories, radio plays, calendars of community events, and other material previously available to the vision impaired 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!
