Choice Magazine Listening records the best articles, stories and poems from over 100 of the finest magazines.
CML’s Unique Service: Since 1962 Choice Magazine Listening has been serving adults with conditions that make it difficult to read standard print. The philanthropist LuEsther T. Mertz founded CML so all Americans could enjoy the best writing from leading magazines. CML’s editors select articles, stories and poems from more than 100 publications, including: National Geographic, Time, Sports Illustrated, Harper’s, Scientific American, The New Yorker, Smithsonian, Rolling Stone, Natural History, Southern Living, Travel-Leisure, McSweeney’s, Texas Monthly, Horticulture, Esquire, Discover, Outside, Audubon, and Vanity Fair.
Who can receive CML?
Any adult who has difficulty reading or even holding a magazine is eligible. CML’s subscribers include those with conditions such as low vision, macular degeneration, blindness, MS, diabetes, cerebral palsy, ALS, dyslexia and Parkinson’s.
Here’s how it works:
Four times a year, listeners receive 12 hours of great magazine writing. A talking book player is also provided free of charge. Recipients enjoy the issue for several weeks, then return it in the postage free mailer it arrived in. It’s as easy as that! (CML is also available as a download.) CML is a nonprofit organization supported by tax-deductible donations and grants. This service is free of charge to all listeners.
We’re happy to help. Give us a call 9 to 4 Eastern Time and you’ll speak to a friendly person, not a machine.
