Welcome to NCBI Live

NCBI Live is Ireland’s first online radio station for blind and vision impaired listeners and broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week online. The content covers all aspects of living with sight loss from technology available to issues affecting the sight loss community to individual’s sharing their own stories and experiences. It draws on the best of NCBI’s most recent audio content from the NCBI podcast, Talking Technology podcast and Advocacy Talks on a loop as well as information about NCBI’s services and campaigns and how to get in touch. The loop runs for 3 hours in duration before repeating again so the audio stream runs 24/7. The content is updated regularly.

NCBI Live can be accessed directly through this web page or through the NCBI Smart Hub which is activated using a smart speaker such as Alexa or Google.
