Bumblebee is an easy to use app specially designed to give visually impaired listeners simple, portable access to a huge range of internet audio content.

Simon Parsons Regional Development Manager for thr South East said; “Historically we have provided radios which have evolved over the years, first becoming digital and then moving into internet radio, but always providing companionship to those who cannot see”.

“Now, Bumblebee has brought us into a new era of audio technology. It has been developed in-house to change the way we deliver our existing streamed service and is designed to alleviate the frustration blind people can feel while navigating smart devices”.

Simon recieved the cheque from General Manager of Medway Services Krzysztof Osajda.
