Visually Impaired

Carlisle & District Talking Newspapers

Since 1983, Talking Newspapers have provided weekly recordings of items from North Cumbrian daily and weekly newspapers, and a monthly recording of magazine articles, to visually impaired recipients in a wide area. We have seven teams of volunteers, an overseeing volunteer committee, and a board of trustees.
Recordings are sent on USB memory sticks, and postage -free services are kindly provided by the Post Office. If a recipient does not have the means to play the recording, we can provide a simple USB player free of charge, and there is of course no charge for the service, which is funded by public contributions. Further donations are of course welcome, to allow us to maintain this valuable service.
If you know of anyone who would like to receive recordings, or if you would like to help produce and distribute recordings, please contact us:
