PSS iTalk

Welcome to PSS iTalk, an advice and information service delivered by the Partially Sighted Society for anyone who experiences life with sight loss.

Everything PSS iTalk produces is audio based and you can listen in several different ways. Find out which way is easiest for you here.

Wherever and however you listen to PSS iTalk, it is our mission to provide quality news, honest reviews and handy tips for people with visual disabilities.

But we can’t do this alone.

We are always looking for talented contributors from the Partially Sighted and Blind community to get involved with this project. So if you feel you have a voice for the radio or just have an interesting story to tell the world, get in touch with us today!
