Do you know about Sheffield Talking News?

Sheffield Talking News (STN) has an Office and Studio within SRSB's building on Mappin Street.

They have been supported by SRSB since we began over 30 years ago although they are an independent charity.

Their main purpose is to provide a weekly local news audio recording for blind and partially sighted people in and around Sheffield.

They also provide audio recordings of interviews with interesting local people and places of interest in the city. e.g. Master Cutler, Museum Curators, Cathedral etc.

In addition they record a Magazine every few months full of interesting ideas, stories, recipes, tips, and a quiz etc.

There are many different ways of hearing our recordings which may surprise you! For example, you could access their recordings over the telephone by dialling 0114 383 0345. Please note that normal local call charges apply for the phone service but some phone providers include free calls at weekends and/or evenings, or free minutes at various times. Check your contract. This number also give access to Infosound's Audio Library, RNIB's Infoline and the local weather.

Why not get in touch and become one of the many people who already enjoy their service? They receive such encouraging messages from people about how STN is the highlight of their week.

It could be yours too! - All free of charge.
