Welcome to ‘Sound Without Sight’

We are very happy to be going live with the first iteration of our new platform and community hub to support, promote, and connect blind and partially sighted musicians and audio engineers.

Introduction

Sound Without Sight is a new non-profit initiative, aimed at supporting sight-impaired people in the fields of audio and music. We will: showcase blind and partially sighted talent, highlight how accessibility barriers can be overcome, combine collective knowledge, and challenge stereotypes.

Our focus areas

We will support the blind and partially sighted community to access:

  1. Audio production: recording, editing, mixing, etc.
  2. Music notation: reading and composing, obtaining accessible scores, screen access technologies, etc.
  3. Performance: instrumental, vocal, speech; individual or group; beginner or professional.

Combining knowledge

Help us compile a hub of experience and useful advice, to support blind and partially sighted people to engage fully with music and audio related activities.
