WRBH Reading Radio for the Blind and Print Impaired is a New Orleans based station whose mission for over 35 years has been to turn the written word into the spoken word so that the blind and print handicapped can receive the same ease of access to current information as their sighted peers. Our 24/7 programming consists of the latest and best journalism, books, and interviews and broadcasts them straight to your streaming device.
WRBH’s brand new app, funded with a grant from the Ella West Freeman Foundation, is a continuation of our mission and we hope it makes the station even more accessible to people in New Orleans and across the country. Included will be a live stream of our station, weekly and “now playing” schedule features, a page dedicated to the station’s interview and podcast archive, contact information for WRBH’s staff, and an easy way to donate and sign up for our monthly newsletter.
Programs include: a daily, live airing of the news in New Orleans and across the world; readings of The New Yorker, Time Magazine and Entertainment Weekly; airings of new and classic works of fiction such as To Kill A Mockingbird, and The Grapes of Wrath; shows focused on upcoming local events and even the week’s grocery ads; and specialty programs like the humorous Sunday Satire, informative Public Affairs interview series, a local poetry and fiction half-hour called Figure of Speech, and Old Time Radio, which rebroadcasts classic radio dramas from the 30’s and 40’s.

“Reading” has never been more convenient
I love to use this app to “read” while driving and doing chores or other activities. I’ve tried other text-to-voice apps or programs but hearing a real human read the text DOESN’T EVEN COMPARE to the robotic voice most other services utilize. Don’t sleep on this great resource!
