Our charity was formed in 1985 and since then we have produced a weekly talking newspaper for the blind and visually impaired in North/Mid Norfolk. We are all volunteers who get together every week to produce memory sticks in our studio in Aylsham. The Eastern Daily Press/North Norfolk News has generously allowed us to edit and reproduce their weekly newspaper and the Royal Mail kindly send out and return the memory sticks for free. Our listeners are provided with appropriate audio equipment funded by the Charity – there are no subscriptions involved – and a listener liaison officer representative is regularly on the road visiting them to make sure all is well.
The recordings themselves will be sent on a memory stick that plugs into the player (that can also be provided free) and is returned using the re-usable plastic envelope that it came in.
Every week we upload the new MP3 that can be listened online or downloaded and played later. More and more of our listeners are using technology to improve everyday tasks, so are we.
