Recorders

  • VO91954


Description

Each week our volunteer team prepare, read and record articles from The Orcadian for those who are not able to read the newspaper. We are looking for volunteer recorders to help us produce a weekly CD every week. Reading and recording is done on Thursdays and the CD is copied and dispatched on Fridays.

Organisation aims and objectives

We provide weekly copies of articles from "The Orcadian" and quarterly copies of magazines using material from "The Orcadian", "Living Orkney" and "Orkney Farmer" magazines. These recordings are available on CD, USB stick and by podcast through our website. Our service is primarily for people with visual impairments but people with physical problems which make it difficult to hold a newspaper can also receive our recordings. Our recordings are offered free of charge and CD and USB stick players are available to listeners who need them.
