Audio Narration Services for Print Publications

Enhancing Accessibility for Newspapers, Magazines, and More

Aftersight empowers organizations to be accessible to individuals with blindness or low-vision by offering professional narration services. Our team of over 100 volunteers transforms written content from Colorado newspapers, magazines, and other publications into audio format, serving an audience of over 40,000.

Our efficient workflow enables us to rapidly convert daily, weekly, and monthly publications into audio format, responding swiftly to the fast-paced nature of news.

Collaborative Partnerships

We form partnerships with publications to deliver accessible audio content. These partnerships are based on mutual respect and a shared commitment to accessibility, enriching our listeners’ lives through transparent and community-focused audio content. In exchange for this service, we ask publications to engage with us by providing print materials, making audio versions available on their websites, allowing the use of their names and logos for promotion, and helping spread the word about Aftersight. Our collaborations often include sponsorships, shared news stories, joint fundraisers, and knowledge exchange, benefiting both parties and the community.

About Aftersight

Aftersight, a premier audio recording service, transforms printed content into audio for individuals who are blind or have low vision. Leveraging the skills of over 100 volunteers, we produce audio formats for various materials, including newspapers, magazines, and infographics, with over 30 years of experience.

Process

At Aftersight, our commitment to delivering exceptional audio content is reflected in our systematic approach:

  • Comprehensive Training: Volunteers undergo extensive training to produce high-quality audio recordings that are accurate, professional, and timely.
  • Content Precision: We meticulously reproduce the original material, ensuring its essence and details are preserved. We may make adjustments to the content order to align with listener needs and constraints, while typically omitting advertisements, image descriptions, and long exhaustive lists/directories.
  • Professional Delivery: Our process emphasizes professional presentation, with volunteers using appropriate tone, pacing, and articulation to effectively convey the message.
  • Legal Compliance and Ethical Use: Operating under the Chafee amendment, we guarantee equal access to information and secure permissions for content use, respecting copyright laws.

Selective Process: Ensuring Alignment with Our Mission

Aftersight’s selective process guarantees that our projects resonate with our mission and vision, focusing on impactful community contributions:

  • Mission Alignment: We prioritize projects that enhance accessibility for individuals who are blind or have low vision and align with our mission.
  • Community Impact: Projects should serve the needs of our target audience and contribute positively to the community.
  • Technical and Resource Fit: We accept projects within our technical capabilities and available resources.
  • Collaboration and Benefit: We seek initiatives that allow for mutual benefits and collaboration.
  • Unique Offerings: The project should not duplicate existing services and must bring new value to our audience.
  • Transparency and Integrity: Adherence to our transparency and integrity policies is crucial, ensuring content diversity, balance, and ethical standards. Our commitment to inclusivity and integrity in content production is fundamental, steering clear of extreme biases and upholding a diverse range of perspectives.
