A Message to All Our Friends

As we wind down to the last days of Omni Media Networks, we want to once more let all our friends, supporters, and volunteers know how much you have meant to us over the years.  From Oregon Public Broadcasting, where we had our first studio, to the Oregon Commission for the Blind, who housed our last one, we are indebted to you.  And to all the board operators, book and magazine recorders, newspaper readers, schleppers and haulers, and volunteers of all kinds, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  You have helped make the lives of the visually impaired just a little bit better.  We couldn't have done it without you.

Our Mission

Omni Media Networks is a public-benefit, non-profit organization of people who provide information, education, and entertainment for those who are unable to read traditional printed material, the physically disabled, and senior citizens. We provide audio streams (webcasts) available over the internet that specifically address the needs of this audience.

This website offers high-contrast text, minimal graphics, and simple design so that it can be easily accessed by the vision-impaired.



Emergency Preparedness Information

We have prepared audio files describing the Voluntary Emergency Registry. To learn how to sign up for this service, listen here. To learn how to assemble an emergency preparedness kit, listen here.

Also available is a one-hour audio program, Responding to Disasters: From Prediction to Recovery. This program is a special report from IEEE Spectrum magazine and the National Science Foundation. Listen here.

NOTE: As of 12/16/2011 our email address has changed. You can reach us at omni@omnimedia.org.
