The service, called IRIS Perth, is part of a suite of free-to-access Perth community digital radio services. IRIS is restoring a radio reading service for the local blind and low vision community.

RPH is a radio reading service of popular news publications, providing people who are blind or have low vision access to the same political and cultural information the rest of the community takes for granted.

IRIS is managed by Vision Australia in partnership with local Indigenous community radio station Noongar Radio. The collaboration to restore this digital radio service reflects the high level of support for the RPH service in Perth, and the increasing listenership of local DAB+ radio services. �24% of radio listening there is now accommodated via DAB+ services.
