Stay connected with GATEWAVE -- Audio for Independent Living
WHO WE ARE
Gatewave is a not-for-profit around-the-clock audio service for listeners who are blind, visually impaired or reading disabled. We are one of more than fifty such services nationwide, but the only one in New York City. We are also a 501 (c) (3) registered charity with offices at Helen Keller Services in Brooklyn, NY.
WHAT WE AIR
We play verbatim readings from magazines, newspapers and the web, spoken by skilled human voices, never computers. We also find and create special content specifically to help listeners live a full life with vision loss.
HOW WE ARE HEARD
For eligible listeners, we are heard on special radios in the New York City area (purchased or borrowed from Gatewave), on the internet, on smartphone apps, or on a telephone dial-in system.
WHO CAN LISTEN
To be eligible to receive Gatewave, you need to apply for service, either online or by printing out the application on our website. You must be certified as legally blind; or have only partial vision, requiring the use of visual aids other than ordinary eyeglasses in order to read conventional print comfortably; or have a reading disability or physical disability that prevents normal reading.
