The NJSL Talking Brook & Braille Center (TBBC) offers a free 24/7 service to put you directly in touch with news and information. Audiovision is free to any NJ resident registered with TBBC who lives within the Audiovision broadcast area and is unable to read standard print because of a visual or physical disability. Audiovision is intended solely for use by the blind and others with eligible print disabilities. New Jersey Television Network (NJN) has provided Audiovision as a free service for blind New Jerseyans since 1983.
Audiovision broadcasts news, special interest programs, and emergency alerts. The focus is on local news, including editorials and obituaries, giving in-depth coverage and keeping TBBC’s customers in touch with their communities. Audiovision provides excerpts from the Asbury Park Press, the Bergen Record, the Camden Courier Post, the Home News Tribune, the Jersey edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Times of Trenton. State and national coverage come from the Newark Star Ledger, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. Grocery ads, TV Guide, cooking shows, health and disability news, senior citizen issues and more provide a window to the world 24/7.
