Queensland Narrating Service (QNS) is a not-for-profit community organisation based in Brisbane, Australia, committed to building relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, service users, communities and individuals. QNS strives to support closing the gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the broader community, by producing audio information to support Indigenous people with print disabilities.
The use of audio formats is vital, in recognition of the importance of the oral transmission of historical and cultural knowledge in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and to overcome literacy barriers and vision loss. In remote communities english is often a second or third language and there is a great need for access to information for personal development to increase self-determination. Through technology QNS has the ability to provide a wide range of printed material in a digital audio format, suitable for playing on any platform, for people with a print disability.
QNS has worked on collaborative project to bring audio information for Indigenous people with print disabilities. These include:
QNS is funded by the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services.
