CML: A free audio magazine for adults with impaired vision or other disability

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.

Any questions?

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.

About jwatrel

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" ( 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
