September 30, 2010 at 9:16 AM (PT)
The battle to bring radio to mobile devices continued TODAY (9/30), when a key organization representing audio information services for blind and disabled persons issued a statement supporting radio-capable cell phones.
Today's endorsement comes from the INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF AUDIO INFORMATION SERVICES (IAAIS).
Commenting on the support, NAB EVP DENNIS WHARTON issued the following statement:
"News reading services provide a critical information and lifeline resource to people who are visually-impaired, and local radio stations are the conduit for making these services possible. NAB is proud to have the support of an organization committed to making a positive difference in communities across AMERICA."
