West Shropshire Talking Newspaper

Description:

West Shropshire Talking Newspaper (WSTN) is a free service to the blind and partially sighted, providing local news and information.  

The Shropshire Star and Shropshire weekly newspapers kindly permit news stories to be recorded in high quality digital sound and then made available in a number of easy-to-use formats.

Blind people and anyone with a visual impairment who qualifies for the Royal Mail’s ‘Articles for the Blind’ free post can receive a returnable memory stick through the post, which will play on a computer or portable USB player.  Internet, Alexa and telephone formats are also available, and in addition to the weekly newspaper a bi-monthly magazine is also published.

Volunteers are always needed to help with a range of roles.

For more information, please follow the link to visit their website, or if you would like to arrange a talk or wish to find out more about volunteering, please contact using the number provided.
