Wales Council of the Blind

Forest Talk

Description: Forest Talk provides a weekly talking newspaper for blind and visually impaired people in the Forest Of Dean, Gloucestershire. We record local news items taken from the weekly Forest of Dean newspapers: The Forester and Wye Valley Forest Review. We complement this with a weekly ‘magazine’ of light-hearted articles, local interest items, poems and anecdotes. Each recording lasts approximately 90 minutes. Our recordings are distributed on USB memory sticks. We also supply each of our registered blind listeners with a free of charge USB ‘soundbox’ to enable them to listen to our recordings each week. Publications: The Forester (weekly); The Wye Valley Review (weekly); Western Daily Press (daily).

Cost: Free of charge to those who are registered blind, using the Royal Mail’s Articles for the Blind service
