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.

In partnering with the IAAIS, the Insignia team was able to identify those radio features most requested by the roughly 20 million Americans who live with vision loss or impairment. With The Narrator, there is no need for another person to tune the radio, set the time, arrange pre-set favorites or be certain that the radio is powered down. The Narrator's key features include:

◊ 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

Customers can pre-order The Narrator on for $99, and it will be available for purchase online in July 2012.
