WUIS Radio Information Service (RIS) is a member of the International Association of Audio Information Services and Illinois Radio Information Services Inc.

WUIS provides an information service for people who are print disabled (blind, visually impaired, learning disabled and physically disabled). The service provides a wide variety of programming. Local, area and national newspapers, magazines and books are available to the listeners.

The Radio Information Service is broadcast on a closed circuit sideband channel on WUIS 91.9 FM Springfield, Illinois and WIPA 89.3 FM Pittsfield, Illinois that can be heard on a special radio called a sideband receiver or via an online stream. The receivers are provided at no cost to listeners in central and west-central Illinois.
