Virginia Forster noticed a change in her vision in the aftermath of a stroke. “It was exhausting to read,” she tells us. “And soon the words began to scatter themselves around the page.” In a vision therapy session, she learned that her reading frustration was caused by dyslexia. “One day I was telling a friend how hard it had gotten to read, and she said: ‘I know someone who can read for you!’ I was so excited to learn about Virginia Voice.”

After a Virginia Voice volunteer delivered Virginia’s special radio, she could enjoy reading once again by listening to books, magazines, and newspapers. “Losing my vision, I felt myself letting go of one thing at a time, and reading was a big loss for me. Now, listening to the Virginia Voice Book Hour is something I enjoy so much, and I always hear something new.”

After listening to Virginia Voice for six years, Virginia says she feels like she knows our volunteer readers. “They truly have become like members of my family!” Through Virginia Voice, Virginia Forster now enjoys something she feared she had lost forever.
