About VoicePrint

News & Information…Heard Across Canada

VoicePrint is owned and operated by the National Broadcast Reading Service (NBRS) a non-profit organization dedicated to providing media access for millions of blind, low-vision and print-restricted Canadians and their immediate families to a level the sighted world enjoys.

The flagship service of N.B.R.S., VoicePrint, has been broadcasting 24 hours a day since December 1, 1990

The VoicePrint mission is to deliver to all Canadians with diminished vision a flow of information that is essential to their decision-making and quality of life.

VoicePrint is a 24-hour satellite-to-cable network, carrying National, Regional and local News. It's the World's largest and Canada's exclusive, National reading service. A unique blend of current information recorded by over 600 volunteer readers from all walks of life.

Most of each program day consists of verbatim readings from over 100 newspaper, magazine and periodicals. These articles are packaged into topical program segments. The National Report - today's headline new stories - airs Monday to Friday at 9:00 am (Eastern Time). Business, sports, health, science, lifestyles and leisure, regional news and old time radio shows are just a few of the other topics in the program line up. Programming in the National Broadcast Service is recorded at Toronto, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver.

The Voiceprint signal is carried by cable companies with more than 2,000 subscribers, and multipoint distribution systems (MDS) - such as Look TV, SkyCable and Image Wireless - operating in English-language markets will be required to distribute VoicePrint.

Direct-to-home (DTH) satellite providers such as Bell ExpressVu and Star Choice will also be required to distribute the service to their English-language subscribers.
