listening to an

edition of Bromley

District Talking News.











Each week a team of volunteers reads the local papers
and extracts the most interesting articles.

The articles are then edited and recorded by our volunteers.

The recordings are then copied onto USB memory sticks...

Each week hundreds are packed and posted to our listeners
throughout the borough.

The memory sticks can be played on an easy-to-use audio player
which we can supply...

...or you can play them on your own computer or other audio device.

But it's not just news...

Each edition is prepared by a panel of editors, with news taken
from local newspapers. Other relevant information from the internet
is also added.

It is then recorded by our reading teams, and using high-speed equipment, hundreds of copies are made, and sent to our listeners.

As well as our weekly news edition, we also produce seasonal extras which include stories and longer features.

Keeping up-to-date will help you to maintain an active interest in life in and around the borough. With the arrival of familiar and trusted voices into your home each week, Talking News will provide a sense
of belonging and friendship.

And there's more:

The weekly briefing by the UK charity, "Infosound" can also be heard
at the end of each of our news editions. It contains nationwide information of relevance to blind and partially-sighted people.

Finally our listeners can hear that week's edition of the BBC Radio 4 programme "In Touch", especially produced by the BBC for blind and visually impaired people.
