What is GaRRS? As the State’s only radio reading service, the Georgia Radio Reading Service (GaRRS) is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit closed circuit radio station ... See more whose mission is to improve the quality of life for every Georgian who is blind, visually-impaired or has difficulty with access to the printed word by broadcasting current information via sub channel radio transmission and streamlining on the internet. Founded in 1980, GaRRS broadcast is provided by more than 200 volunteer readers from across Georgia who deliver approximately 150 different radio shows each month including cover-to-cover readings of magazines, newspapers, and books, population-specific programming (Seniors, Veterans and Hispanic/Latino News), public service announcements and information regarding community-support programs and activities. GaRRS programs are broadcast 7 days a week, 24 hours a day by way of special sub channel (SCA) radio receivers and a password protected audio streaming link from our website. Who Listens to GaRRS? GaRRS' listening audience is as diverse as its programming. Some listeners have been blind since birth while others lost their sight through illness, age or accident later in life. Still others have retained sufficient peripheral vision to remain physically active, but not enough to read. GaRRS' listeners also include senior citizens too weakened to read, people with palsy whose hands can no longer hold books, and the dyslexic.

GaRRS is a "closed-circuit" radio station that provides access to the printed word for Georgians who are blind, visually impaired and print disabled. We are staffed almost entirely by volunteers who read from more than 120 magazines, 35 newspapers, and 25 unabridged books each month. We also deliver public service information, community announcements and information on social support programs targeting such audiences as seniors and Veterans. GaRRS programs are broadcast 7 days a week, 24 hours a day by way of special subchannel radios provided by GaRRS to its subscribers. Listeners can also hear our broadcasts via an audio streaming link on our website.
