GaRRS brings the printed word to individuals across Georgia who are visually-impaired or print-disabled. Our programming provides readings of periodicals and books that would otherwise be unavailable to those who cannot read printed materials. In addition to books, magazines, shopping ads, and newspapers, GaRRS also has employment information, service programs, and announcements targeted to the interests of individuals who are visually-impaired and print-disabled.
How to listen
Our programs are completely free, and they are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can listen online, through an app, using one of our free radio receivers, or over the phone.
To listen online to the GaRRS live web stream or to access the extensive library of prerecorded books, you can sign up for a GaRRS username and password. GaRRS also has an extensive library of previously-aired content, including magazines, newspapers, and service programming that can be accessed through our website. There is no charge for this service, but you must have an account to access the programming.
Listen using an app
If you have a smartphone, tablet, or other smart device, the GaRRS live feed is available through the TuneIn app (available on Apple, Android, and Windows devices) or the Sero app, which was formerly the iBlink app (available on Apple and Android devices). Once you've downloaded the app of your choice, you can search for GaRRS and listen to the live broadcast. If you have Amazon Alexa or Echo, you can also listen to the webstream with the command, "Alexa, play the Georgia Radio Reading Service."
Listen using a radio receiver
If you would like to listen over the radio, you can request a special GaRRS radio that will allow you to listen to the live broadcast. To receive a radio, you can fill out our form online or print it out and send it to us by email, fax, or mail. To check the coverage in your area, review our radio broadcast coverage areas.
