Lichfield Talking News

What exactly do we do?

Well, every Wednesday and Thursday small groups of readers and a back up team record the news content from The Lichfield Mercury and other regional newspapers. This content is available for you to listen to by clicking the above link. We transfer this content onto memory sticks and then add to it up to 12 hours of additional material - Magazines - read by professional readers. Not that our readers locally are not professional, they just don't read for a living. 

So, after an hour or two we have the weekly Lichfield Mercury "on tape" (or more accurately on a memory stick) together with the additional magazine content I was mentioning. The magazines, although available to our blind listeners, are copyright protected and so cannot be listened to here. The magazines are household names and include such titles a My Weekly, Woman, Amateur Gardening and many more top quality productions.  

The memory sticks are then sent out by first class post to our listeners. They listen to the content at their leisure using a media player or "Boom Box" supplied by us. They return their memory stick post free to us when they are ready.

That's it! A simple service that provides so much pleasure to our listeners.
