An Internet Radio Player for the visually impaired

Hello there......

I am new to Arduino project development. My idea is to build an Internet Radio Player with Arduino SBC with some other extension so that the streams can be accessible to the visually impaired. I am planning to start an Internet Radio Channel for educational purposes so that the streams can be played and if possible recorded onto a MicroSD card. I came across this type of device using Parallax Propeller MCU. Please guide me. Thanx in advance.

An Arduino is only a 16 Mhz processor and is not powerfull enough to handle those audistreams by itself. (even without the record option) you need additional hardware for that. However you could make the user interface - switches, rotary encoders etc for input and maybe a buzzer for feedback - with an Arduino.

Can you give us some math about the audio rates / quality you are thinking of?
I recal that most visually impaired have improved hearing …
