The Talking Information Center
By turning print into sound, TIC strives to make a difference in the lives of our listeners, many of whom are isolated from the wealth of information available to the sighted world.
The Talking Information Center is an award-winning radio reading service that broadcasts the reading of printed material. Access to our service is provided over an extensive network of radio and cable TV outlets in collaboration with our five affiliates across the state as well as streaming online. Twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week, we help keep the visually-impaired and print-handicapped population of Massachusetts more informed.
TIC offers a variety of programs including Newspapers, consumer interests, NY Times Book lists, History, Sports (Men’s Interest) and more. To view a listing of programs by category, please click here. Each year, TIC provides live coverage of the Bay State Council of the Blind and National Federation of the Blind state conventions.
In addition, we stream our audio on our web site, and we are now offering podcasts . Many of our listeners still listen by using special radio receivers tuned to the sub-carrier of local FM radio stations. To request a radio receiver, or to get more information, please call us 1-800-696-9505.
