The Long Eaton & District Talking Newspaper
for the Blind & Partially Sighted

The volunteer’s of the Long Eaton & District Talking Newspaper, always inspire.
Many of them are working from home, using different types of equipment to record our Talking Newspaper like iPhone Voice Recorder, Audacity and Zoom. to help keep our listeners informed and entertained.

We’re got 7 readers now recording 45 stories, that’s nearly 2 hours of listening plus 13 Magazine Programmes once every 3 weeks.

Two volunteers meet in one of their homes to look after the back room administration very carefully whilst respecting vital social distancing. One of our technicians prepares the master memory stick with all the stories & magazines on so our back room team can, once they’ve deleted last recording from the 160+ memory sticks (on our clever duplicating machines) returned by our listeners, they can then duplicate the master memory stick onto the now “clean” sticks. Another one of our technician posts our stories to our Website & Bumblebee.

Busy and exciting times, but suffice to say we all look forward to “business as usual” as and when government permit. “Onwards and upwards” as a friend and Taking Newspaper volunteer is often heard to say.
