Get In Touch

According to a study sponsored by the National Eye Institute and reported in the Archives of Ophthalmology (April 2004), blindness or low vision affects 3.3 million Americans age 40 and over, or one in 28 individuals. While dealing with vision loss is difficult emotionally, behaviorally, socially and functionally, not being able to access current in depth news and information puts people with visual impairments at a definite disadvantage - it is more difficult to be as knowledgeable about the world or as empowered to make informed decisions as people who do not have a visual impairment. Not being able to read newspapers and magazines that one is accustomed to can be frustrating and depressing, presenting an obstacle as insurmountable as any physical barrier.

 

The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) research indicates that there are 1.3 million people in the United States that are legally blind. It estimates that approximately an additional 75,000 people a year will become visually impaired and that there are 10 million people in the U.S. who are either blind or visually impaired. In this number 5.5 million are seniors. NFB believes that in the next 30 years, increasing numbers of aging baby boomers will become either blind or visually impaired, doubling the number of persons in this category. Recent media reports on increased obesity rates in America and resulting diabetes rates may result in more Americans suffering visual impairment and in someway CGR Radio brings enrichment and empowerment to their lives by educational entertainment and a wide array of programming to the community within SW Washington Oregon and the world!!

WHY RADIO READING SERVICES??

 

 

 

 

one of the many reasons radio reading services exist: to provide local, timely news to people who aren’t going to find that news anywhere but their local newspaper. We never lose the desire to know what’s going on in our local communities, even when we begin to lose our sight. Audio Information Services allow people to continue to access their local paper independently.

 

 

 

 

 


The relevance of radio reading services has been questioned of late. Why do it at all when technology allows people to read articles online using a computer and screen reading software?

 

 

 

 

 


The answer comes from the listeners we work with every day. When it comes to technology, one size does NOT fit all.

 

 

 

 

Imagine you have been sighted all your life, and due to an accident you are no longer able to see. You have a lot to learn to adapt to your condition. What are you going to do first: learn how to use screen reading software, or learn how to cook your food, operate your washing machine and match your clothes without relying on others? My answer? I’m going to learn the basics, and get a radio from an Audio Information Service to take care of my reading needs until such time I can take on the new technology.

 

 

 

 

 


Even those who have been blind since birth and are computer savvy report screen readers get hung up on web graphics  often get requests to paste the text into the email because the website doesn’t allow them to access the entire article.

 

 

 

 

 


For others, financial limitations keep them from purchasing screen reading software, which can cost nearly a thousand dollars up front and requires an additional fee for license renewal. Even if screen reading software provided a perfect online reading experience, the content  listeners crave may not be available. 

 

 

 

 

 


Technology has also led to a vast improvement in electronic voices. Why, then, do reading services utilize thousands of volunteers to read our content? There are times when the human voice can convey the material being read more effectively. 

 

 

 

 

 

Then there is the need for human connection. So many of our listeners are homebound or in care facilities — we might be the only human voice they hear on a given day. 

 

 

 

 

Why radio reading? Audio Information Services make the printed word accessible to people with vision and print impairments in a way no other industry can, and we do it on a scale few can match. Technology is a spectrum. Formats will come and go. But Audio Information services are not dying. The professionals who work in this industry every day are committed to growing and changing along with the technology available to meet the varied needs of our listeners.

KFAE also broadcast the CGR 1 Radio Reading Service to blind and handicapped listeners on its 67kHz subcarrier.However, this requires a special FM radio capable of receiving such broadcasts; it cannot be received on a standard FM radio.

The Fine Arts Radio Reading Service does break away from CGR 1 programming(Thank you to FARRS and KFAE 89.1 FM).

CGR Radio is a copyrighted name owned by Gerald R.Gaule and Northwest Audio Information Service is a Trade Mark Name and is a business under the IRS and Washington State Department of Revenue.

SO if your Business or Service helps the 50 plus, The Blind and or Disabled and or does serve the Farmers-Growers and Ranchers, CGR NWAIS is for you and to bring in MORE repeat customers and NEW customers...VERY Affordable....and with LOYAL and DEDICATED listeners who want value and great service!...

CGR-NWAIS Radio deeply and sincerely apologize for switching back to Oldies from Country, the intention was not to let the audience down but no matter what YOU the listeners are always supportive and have been...the real and honest reason of switching back is due to the "pressure" from a local Metro Country Broadcaster, my intention was not to step on any ones toes but this was taken to a high level of pressure that I could not take any more and not to play the game of back and forth...I am so sorry for the change, but again many did reply and understand...and thank you to those who stuck by and did enjoy the country...
