Infoshare is a very simple idea - short audio messages of helpful information about anything to do with living with sight loss, that anyone can phone-in and record, whenever they like, for us to share with vision-impaired listeners across the UK.
No one joins or subscribes to Infoshare; it is a free public service that you can listen to whenever you like or phone whenever it suits you to add your own message.
Infoshare is a phone-based service, which uses a single UK-wide, standard-rate phone line to record and playback all the messages that have been posted.
You can use the phone's keypad to control recording a message (just like any voicemail recording) and also to select and control the playback of messages you would like to hear. And voice prompts guide you through whatever you would like to do.
And the UK-wide standard-rate number to call is:
0 3 0 0 0 1 1 1 5 5 5
Infoshare messages may also be heard, but not recorded, on any Amazon Alexa smart speaker by saying "Alexa, open Infoshare".
There are several reasons why you might want to share a message with those listening:
You might have a tip, a hint or a life-hack about living with sight loss that could benefit others; you may want to buy, sell, exchange or give away a piece of daily living equipment; or, maybe, you would like to comment about a product or service or share other helpful information.
If you are with a charity, an organisation or a product supplier supporting vision-impaired people, you are also very welcome to contribute a message and share information about what you can offer those living with sight loss.
Messages are recorded - not 'live' - and we make sure all contributions are sounding their best before anyone else hears them.
As one listener tells us, joining in is what Infoshare is all about. So, please do!
