Metropolitan Washington Ear Radio Reading Service


Established in 1974, The Metropolitan Washington Ear, Inc. is a nonprofit organization providing reading and information services for blind, visually impaired and physically disabled people who cannot effectively read print, see plays, watch television programs and films, or view museum exhibits.

Ear free services strive to substitute hearing for seeing, improving the lives of people with limited or no vision by enabling them to be well-informed, fully productive members of their families, their communities and the working world.

MWE is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization incorporated under the laws of the state of Maryland. We've been providing quality services to the visually impaired adults through out Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia for more than 30 years. Our all-volunteer Board of Directors is composed of visually impaired consumers, volunteers who participate in our program, and a cross-section of business and community leaders.

Because of the quality services provided by The Metropolitan Washington Ear, it is second to none in the tri-state area. We're proud of all we do and look forward to continuing to help meet the needs of the visually impaired and blind of the area.
