The Massachusetts Audio Information Network (M.A.I.N.) is a group of six Massachusetts non-profit radio reading service organizations. Each organization provides the reading of material to ensure important local news and information is accessible for people who are blind, visually impaired, low vision, and print impaired. The materials being read include newspapers, magazines, books, and community announcements.
The radio reading service in Massachusetts was founded in 1978 and is available by phone, internet, including smart speakers, and specialized receivers - at no cost to listeners.
M.A.I.N. affiliates are funded by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, grants from local foundations, and businesses and individual donations.
Each M.A.I.N. organization operates independently. For more information regarding this service or to volunteer, please contact one of the organizations directly.
