RPH Audience

Around 5.5 million Australians (22% of the population) live with a print disability. Causes include dyslexia, literacy impairment, attention deficit, arthritis, and vision impairment. Radio Reading services empower all Australians to participate in the community’s political, cultural and social life.

Imagine your life if you couldn’t read print. From the daily newspaper first thing in the morning to the favourite book which puts you to sleep at night, your day would be very different. The Radio Reading Network works to fill this gap.

The 16 radio reading services across the Network provide access to a wide range of current print media for Australians who rely on ‘alternate format’ news, lifestyle and recreational reading. The Radio Reading Network keeps Australians with a print disability in touch with what’s going on, including them in the social, political, economic and cultural life of Australia.
