Coventry Talking Newspaper has been providing free audio content for the blind and visually impaired in Coventry and Warwickshire for over 46 years. Featuring news, information, council updates, what’s on and sport. The audio is available from itunes, google podcast, smart phones, audio directories, smart speakers and relevant apps.

We are in looking for volunteers and supporter groups in the area to assist us in providing audio content.

Are you a local business, charity, solution provider or marketing executive who could join us every month on a virtual meeting to let us know of current services? Or maybe you’re someone who could read the news at our recording studio every other week? We would love to hear from you.

We are looking to increase our weekly stream of audio content that gets produced into a weekly audio package and distributed online every Thursday. Audio content can be sent to us via email attachment, recorded at our studios in Earlsdon, or recorded by us via a virtual meeting from any computer. Originally duplicated onto cassette, we now distribute content via podcasts and smart-speakers. Current distribution methods have no time restrictions which now allow us to distribute more audio. All we ask is that the content is relevant to blind and partially sighted listeners in Coventry.

Coventry Talking Newspaper is a registered charity and has been run by volunteers since 1976. If you feel you can provide assistance to our charity to produce audible content, please contact us at postbag@talkingnewspaper.org.org
