Who We Are
The WVTF Radio Reading Service (RRS) provides readings from current newspapers, books, magazines, and other printed material to individuals who are vision-impaired. This service requires a special radio receiver that WVTF provides free of charge to qualified applicants.
To pick up WVTF Radio Reading Service, listeners need a "subcarrier" receiver (FM-SCA receiver). The RRS requires that a receiver application form be filled out by the listener (or family member). A portion of the application must also be completed by a medical professional or public welfare agent to verify the need for the special radio which WVTF provides free of charge.
Call for radio frequency for your town.
This service and WVTF are owned and operated by Virginia Tech Foundation.
Applications can be mailed to New Vision at 2502 Melrose Ave NW, Suite B, Roanoke, VA 24017
The Radio Reading Service can also now be accessed through Alexa and other smart speakers.
