NCBI is here to transform the lives of children and adults who are blind or vision impaired throughout Ireland, ensuring they have access to the same opportunities, rights, and choices as anyone else in society.

NCBI launches NCBI Live

NCBI is delighted to launch an online radio station for blind or vision impaired listeners that broadcasts 24 hours a day. The content covers all aspects of living with sight loss from technology available to issues affecting the sight loss community to individual’s sharing their own stories and experiences.

It draws on the best of NCBI’s most recent audio content from the NCBI podcast, Talking Technology podcast and Advocacy Talks on a loop as well as information about NCBI’s services and campaigns and how to get in touch.

The loop runs for 3 hours in duration before repeating again so the audio stream runs 24/7. The content is updated regularly.
