There are more than 500 local Talking Newspapers in the UK. They provide audio recordings (in a variety of formats) of local newspapers that are read out loud, recorded and edited by volunteers. The typical audience for Talking Newspapers is blind or partially sighted people. This BBC article gives some further insight.
The Forgotten Wrecks project is working with the Talking News Federation (www.tnf.org.uk) to create and distribute audio articles about the Forgotten Wrecks project for use by local Talking Newspapers around the country. The articles are available to listen to and download below. To download an article, click the download button and, in the new tab that will open, right click on the player and select 'save as'.
