Chelmsford’s Audio News for blind or partially sighted people

For blind or partially sighted people reading is a major undertaking, even with magnifying equipment, and may be impossible.Many people begin to lose their sight as they grow older and find small print documents such as newspapers particularly difficult to read.As a result they may lose track of local events and developments.

The team of volunteers at Chelmsford Talking Newspaper record a spoken version of the Essex Chronicle each week.The recordings are supplied on small audio sticks which may plug into existing sound equipment.The recordings are posted each week and when the recording has been listened to, the audio stick is returned in the same wallet, FreePost.

The service is free.
