The Problem - Limited Access to Local News by the Blind and Partially Sighted
Rotary Solution - Talking Newspaper
Volunteers from the Rotary Club of Upper Eden assist in a weekly production of the Talking Newspaper in Cumbria that involves producing audio versions of local newspapers. Our tasks involve reading newspapers aloud and making sound recordings, producing 'tapes' and posting them to clients. We have supported this project for many years now and have seen many changes in the technology associated with sound reproduction. It doesn't seem long ago when we used to post out tapes to clients but we have now moved on.
