Newspaper on a USB memory stick
FOR VISUALLY IMPAIRED AND DISABLED PEOPLE WHO FIND READING A STRAIN.
We produce, each week, a ninety minute digest of local news and information, on a USB memory stick, which can be played through a computer or a special player (which we can provide). The news items are mainly from “ The Westmorland Gazette,”( by kind permission of the publishers ).
The recording is produced by an enthusiastic team who have achieved success in a national competition for U.K. talking newspapers.
It comprises roughly equal quantities of news from the current issue of the Gazette and features, letters etc from the previous week's paper.
You are eligible to receive the memory stick if you are registered blind or partially sighted.
You are also eligible if not so registered but certified by an optician as being unable to read N.12 print.
For these people the service is FREE.
Anyone who is suffering from a temporary or permanent disability which makes reading a strain can also receive the recording, subject to a simple medical certificate.
For these people a small postage charge must be paid (a 1st class letter stamp) to return the memory stick after listening to the contents.
