Assistive Media Charity Profile
Assistive Media works to heighten the educational, cultural, and quality-of-living standards for people with disabilities by providing free, copyright-approved, high-caliber audio literary works to the world-wide disability community. The internet enables Assistive Media to distribute audio effectively, inexpensively, and efficiently.
Assistive Media was inspired by Kenneth Harmon Erdody, a life- long diabetic and an avid reader. Kenneth's diabetic retinopathy was a concern for his son, David Henry Erdody. David searched for accessible literary works, but discovered that less than 5% of U.S. publications were provided in an alternative audio format specifically for people with text reading disabilities.
Assistive Media recognizes that more than 95% of published works, a major source of information, culture, and education are originally published inaccessible to those with visual and text reading barriers. Assistive Media is a progressive and enabling force that seeks to close this gap, thereby heightening educational, cultural, and quality-of-living standards which leads to independence and integration into the mainstream of society and community life.
