Ootunes should be able to do what you want. I'm not hugely into radio apps but I am in the UK and it worked for me when I tried it.

Try tapin radio. You get 14 days free trial to see if you like the software and then you can purchase a key for $20. Noter that this works on windows I'm not sure if there's a mack version.

Hi Trey! I use Receiver Radio, which is fully accessible with VO. It should be available in the UK App Store.

Can you use Siri to listen to a radio station? For example I will say "play CBS radio" and listen live.

Sometimes I have to use a phrase like "listen to the radio station WXXI". Try a few different similar phrases.

Hello. That’s a shame about TuneIn. Before I say anything else, I may not live in the UK, but I do have a really great alternative app. Like a previous poster on here, I love and use OOTunes. It might cost you some money, I know it cost me five bucks US dollars to purchase it. I don’t know what that would be in your currency. But if you can get that app, it’ll be really good. It does at least some of the things that you want. You can play international stations and you can record them. I was on the fence about purchasing this app at first. But when I looked into it, and I looked on the App Store and it said that it was voiceover accessible and the description, that sold me right there. I think though that this app is going to be your best alternative to tune in.

Hi! You’ve peaked my interest! I’m always on the hunt for a new radio and Music apps! One problem though. I can’t find the one that you’re recommending I found one that looks similar to it. Here’s what it’s called

Radio - Receiver

If you want me to I can get the link.
If this is not the app that you use, could you maybe post a link to it? I live in the US, so I’m not sure if an App Store link would be a good idea but it’s worth a shot. But if anything, can you please post a link to the website where I can go to get it also? I’m not sure if you live in the US or the UK. That’s the only reason I’m asking for the website also. But I just want to make sure that this is the app that you’re talking about. Because I definitely would love to look into it!
Thank you very much in advance! :-)
