Talking newspapers for people with sight loss.

For many people with sight loss reading the local paper is impossible. Talking newspapers have been in circulation for years and are produced by volunteers in your vicinity. Each week these kind helpers read and record the local news to be distributed by post to welcome recipients who are able to keep up to date with local news and events.

Does someone you know have sight loss ? Would they benefit from receiving a copy of the talking newspaper ? They are usually recorded onto a USB memory stick and a boom-box player is provided free of charge.

To find your local talking newspaper use this directory.

  1. This is a wonderful service and more people should be made aware of it!

    1. I agree Jane, some of my elderly clients really enjoy there paper and look forward to it each week. It is a dedicated band of volunteers that really help others feel included in the events of the community which is very important.
