Welcome to LARRS
Los Angeles Radio Reading Service
Radio Broadcasting for Those Who Are Blind or
Print-Impaired in Los Angeles County
"Heard Any Good Newspapers Lately?"
- In the Los Angeles area, about 140,000 individuals have visual impairments.
- If you were blind, visually impaired, physically unable to turn a page, or a senior with
an age-related print disability, how would you stay informed?
- Without timely news, opinions, events listings, consumer information, and community
service reports from printed sources, it is nearly impossible for people who are print
impaired to be fully participating citizens.
LARRS meets this need for information by our daily broadcasts of newspapers, magazines,
ads and books, enabling our listeners to be aware of local events, election information,
back-page stories, grocery and department store ads, sports pages, and even Dear Abby and
