Brief Description

VOICEcorps is a not-for-profit organization. Volunteers read aloud in our studios from daily newspapers, magazines, and other current print. These readings are transmitted over radio, the web and on select local cable systems. Eligible listeners borrow a special radio, use the web, or cable TV to hear the readings. Any medical condition which prevents reading constitutes eligibility. Service has no fee but donations are welcome.
