Talking Newspaper - Bishop's Stortford & District

Have you heard the news?  Do you know someone who would like to keep in touch with local news and events?  Or do you know somone with sight problems who has problems holding a newspaper?

Well The Bishop's Stortford and District Talking Newspaper covers news stories from local newspapers and is available to any resident in this area who has sight problems or who cannot manage a newspaper. AND IT'S FREE!

We take the local news from the two local papers and convert it into audio format, on a USB memory stick. Don't worry if you do not have a player for a USB stick. We can supply you with one and explain how to use it. Whenever possible we include additional features of local interest, such as interviews with local people and societies.

It is available completely free of charge - no postage costs - to visually impaired people and others who cannot manage a newspaper.  

The Talking Newspaper is produced and sent out to listeners each week by local volunteers.

Listeners receive their USB memory sticks in wallets with reversible address labels.
