RNIB Connect Radio (previously Insight Radio) is a British radio station that is part of Royal National Institute of Blind People and was Europe's first radio station for blind and partially sighted listeners. It broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week online, on 101 FM in the Glasgow area, and on Freeview channel 730. Live shows make up around half of the station's output, with the overnight schedule being used as a showcase for the best music, features, interviews and articles from the past few days. Most of the presenters are blind or visually impaired. From 2007 until early 2016 it was known as Insight Radio.

Although the station's main studios are based in Scotland, the station is for everyone in the UK and beyond, with many listeners in the United States and Canada. Other studios are in Edinburgh, Cardiff and London and more locations across the UK are planned for the very near future.

I like to be independent I like to do things myself rather than getting someone to do things for me My name is Atiqa and I am 25 years old I lost my sight when I was 14 years old When I lost my sight I thought I would never be able to do things myself but once I settled down a little And learned about the technologies and computers Since then I became more confident I have a talking scale and talking measuring jug "don't forget Mom's birthday present" A note taker and money detector I connect to many things on my smartphone It tells you whatever is on screen It reads everything to me As a blind or partially sighted person you want to do everything that everyone else wants to do We wanted to create a proposition to put accessibility on companies agendas which we eventually called RNIB Approved What started out as a desire to meet a fundamental customer need, has actually become a real passion for everyone involved For someone coming to our website even with, sight loss or hearing loss or some other physical disability that makes it hard to use websites, the experience should be seamless, easy to use Every time we create a new functionality or a new page we're listening through the page, to make sure that what you can see is getting conveyed through the screen reader Making sure that all the copy on a page is picked up. That the colour contrast contrast levels on the page meet the minimum requirements What's been really good about the RNIB accreditation is that we're working with people who are blind or partially sighted to actually verify that the changes we make, work for real people It's a great honor Companies like Capital One that are trying to make it easier for everyone to access their site is incredible It's hugely important because it begins to tell a story around how the world can be more accessible place

"This podcast for blind listeners provides a niche service which would never be accommodated on a mainstream radio station and contains some of the most moving and well-produced human interest content the judges had heard in a long time."


Big Brother

In 2008, a former member of staff from Insight Radio, Michael Hughes, became a contestant on the TV show Big Brother.


The radio station started as an online service called VIP on Air in November 2003, broadcasting for 2 hours a day, and later extending this to a 4-hour broadcast day. In 2007 the service was completely re-vamped, renamed and re-launched as Insight Radio.

The name VIP on Air was changed for a number of reasons. VIP in this context stands for Visually Impaired People but could be easily misunderstood. Also, as the station only broadcast online at the time, it wasn't actually 'on air' at all.

After broadcasting as Insight Radio for a number of years, the station changed its name to RNIB Connect Radio in 2016.
