5RPH a reading and information service to the print handicapped
via 1197 on the AM band and Digital Radio in Adelaide.

It is estimated that 18.4% of South Australians
have a print disability (292,000 people), 5RPH
plays a vital role in meeting their information needs.
Among this group are people with severe vision loss,
those who understand spoken English but cannot read it easily,
people with learning difficulties, and those
with physical disabilities such as arthritis.



Program Selection

5RPH programs are designed to provide
South Australia's print handicapped population with the
same access to information that the rest of
the population takes for granted.

With a broadcast area that covers the vast majority of
South Australia's population, 5RPH's
listeners rely on the service for readings from daily newspapers,
weekly magazines and a selection of disability specific programs.



Coverage Area




5RPH relies heavily on the assistance of over
180 dedicated volunteers who give freely of their time.

We'd be lost without them!

Each week, volunteer readers, panel operators, editors and presenters
donate over 450 hours to prepare and present the
variety of programs heard on 5RPH.

Volunteers range in age from 17 years to 87 years; from university students
and home makers to retired teachers and doctors.
