Minneapolis, MN; Houston - May 18, 2012 - Best Buy and the International Association of Audio Information Services (IAAIS) previewed The Narrator, Insignia's first "talking" HD Radio product, at the IAAIS annual conference in Houston. The Narrator, named for its differentiating features includes audible voice responses, access to local HD Radio broadcasts of reading services, and an ergonomic design, was designed in collaboration with the IAAIS to be accessible for people with visual impairments.

◊ Audible voice prompts on buttons
◊ Button layout and markings that are intuitively designed
◊ Table-top HD Radio
◊ 20-preset memory
◊ 3.5 mm headphone jack for convenience and privacy
