FREE AUDIO DIGEST OF LOCAL NEWS
FOR VISUALLY IMPAIRED AND DISABLED PEOPLE WHO FIND READING A STRAIN.
Each week we produce a FREE 90-minute digest of news and local information from the 'Westmorland Gazette', supplied to users by post on a USB memory stick. This can be played either on a computer or through a special player provided by us. Extracts from the 'Westmorland Gazette' are by kind permission of the publishers.
Once played, the memory sticks are sent back to us via Freepost and then returned to each user with the new week's recording. Our players are simple to operate, and instruction on how to use them is given to new subscribers. Or you can use your own computer.
The recordings are produced in our Kendal studio by an enthusiastic team of volunteers and comprise a topical 'news' section, plus a helping of features, letters, entertainment listings, and items of general interest. The team of script editors, readers and other volunteers has been placed highly in a competition for 'talking newspapers'.
The service is free for anyone registered blind or partially sighted, or those certified by an optician as being unable to read N12 print. In addition, those suffering a temporary or permanent disability which makes reading a strain can receive the service by providing a medical certificate.
