Britsh Wireless for the Blind Logo


From the very first crystal set with Braille dials issued in 1929 to the wireless internet audio player provided today, this section documents all the adapted and suitable mainstream sets that were issued to people with a visual impairment. Clear photographs show the front and back of the sets with supporting information detailing the date of issue, manufacturer, model number and set modifications. There is also detailed information about the set manufacturers, a radio technician who restored the old sets for British Wireless for the Blind Fund and an article from the British Vintage Wireless Society’s bulletin relating to the discovery of an old Magnum set.
