Sero, formerly known as iBlink Radio, is an app that offers radio stations, podcasts and reading services of special interest to individuals with blindness or visual impairments. Each station offered is part of Community Radio and/or operated by persons with limited-to-no eyesight. Music offered spans various genres from classics of the 1950s to modern alternative rock. Reading services offered by the app include thousands of narrated newspapers, magazines and periodicals, including the Wall Street Journal and New York Times. The available podcasts are produced by blind or visually-impaired individuals on a variety of topics, including technology, independent living and travel.
Sero can be downloaded from the Apple App Store for iPhone and iPad, Google Play for Android devices, Amazon App Store for Kindle Fire and the Mac App Store for Apple computers.
This app is free, however without a subscription or free trial, you’ll have access to a small subset of the audio content, and none of the community features such as forums or voice chat. For unlimited access, there is an auto-renewing subscription available within the app for $5.99 per month.
