The Society has provided a free talking newspaper service for more than 40 years. We read a selection of editorial articles, letters and obituaries from the Isle of Wight County Press on a weekly basis and include the weekly podcast of the Radio 4 programme ‘In Touch'. We also include Society news, details of forthcoming events and any other information that we feel our listeners would want to know about, or that we are asked to include.
The Talking News is recorded on USB memory sticks, which are sent to you by post as Articles for the Blind. If you do not already have equipment that will play a USB memory stick, the Society may agree to loan a player to you.
Please note that this only applies to listeners living on the Isle of Wight.
If you would like to have the talking newspaper sent to you direct please complete the online form here to be added to our distribution list.
