TuneIn Partners with HumanWare to Enhance Audio Accessibility
TuneIn has announced a new integration with HumanWare, an assistive technology device company, to deliver accessible and inclusive listening experiences for blind people. Driven in part by increased customer requests, TuneIn is now installed in HumanWare’s latest digital media audio player, Victor Reader Stream 3, to provide access to TuneIn’s extensive catalog of music, live sports, podcasts, commercial-free news and much more in an accessible format.
This new integration is part of TuneIn’s commitment to make audio content more accessible for listeners with disabilities. Through the Victor Reader Stream 3, listeners who are blind or have low vision use verbal prompts to select stations or podcasts from the TuneIn service. The pocket-sized device is Bluetooth connected and features larger and more tactical buttons to navigate with greater ease.
