The Recording Studio produces hundreds of CDs, tapes and USBs for distribution to blind people allowing them to enjoy material that is only published in printed form

The recording studio creates audio transcriptions of books and periodicals on media (tape, CD, downloadable files) allowing blind people the opportunity to enjoy content published on paper.  

Each day, sighted volunteers donate their time to read printed publications in the studio. With the permission of the publishers, these recordings are distributed at no charge to blind clients who can now enjoy newspaper reports, magazine and periodical articles and newly released books. They are available for download online, on CD, on USB, and even on cassette tapes. For many blind people, this is a vital link to the cultural and literary sources that they have no other access to.

Your support can keep the Recording Studio in business. Your donations will be targeted to buying the media used for recording, for distribution of the recorded media to home-bound sightless, and for maintenance and expansion of the recording studio and duplication equipment. Click below to make a donation to keep these programs alive!

2017 The Need Continues

After decades of slowly improving circumstances for the sightless in Greece, conditions for the blind have taken a drastic downturn as a result of the faltering economy of Greece. If you have ever considered helping to improve the lives of others less fortunate than you, now is the perfect time to act.
