We’re excited to make our content available to you on more platforms you want to access. Research conducted last year indicated that AMI’s core audience, the blind and partially sighted community, regularly incorporates podcasts as part of its media consumption. More than one quarter of surveyed participants confirmed that they spend approximately one hour listening to podcasts each day – and that number is growing. We’re always building on making our media accessible on more platforms for our listeners and we value our community’s input.

How to subscribe to AMI-audio podcasts: The basics 

Listening to episodes of podcasts requires an Internet connection through the use of cellular or WiFi data. Downloading episodes while unconnected to WiFi will count against your cellular data plan. Grab the latest episodes while on WiFi whenever possible. Podcast clients or apps used to enjoy podcasts have settings which you are encouraged to be familiar with so decisions regarding the use of cellular data remain in your hands.

Another area where these settings can help make your experience better is deciding whether to stream or download episodes. Downloading episodes stores them on your device where they can be played even while you're not connected to the Internet. This is optimal if you have enough storage space on your device. The other method is streaming episodes. This requires you to be connected to the Internet. Content is played on your device without being stored there. If storage space is limited, the ability to stream episodes lets you subscribe to podcasts without worrying about having enough free space for episodes.
