Wireless helps get the picture.
Paul Matthews, 24, of Tonypandy received the set, known as the Sonata, from the charity British Wireless for the Blind Fund (BWBF).
The small black and yellow box is changing the way people with sight loss access music, news, books, magazines and even shopping catalogues.
"I'm a massive Manchester United supporter and the Sonata has allowed me to listen to all the games, which is fantastic," Mr Matthews said. "The quality of the Sonata is so much better than an average radio, so listening to matches is a lot more enjoyable. I also enjoy downloading podcasts."
Paul, who has been blind from birth, heard about the radio from his support worker at Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council.
"I would definitely recommend it to other blind and partially sighted people. It's one of those things I can't live without now," he added.
