Talking Newspapers Producer

  • VO68931


The volunteer producer will operate and maintain the recording equipment in our small studio to record the volunteer readers who come in to record excerpts from the local newspapers, books, magazines etc. The recordings are copied to USBs which are then sent out to our sight impaired membership. When the service users have finished with them, they return the USBs to us so that we can delete the old recordings and replace them with new ones. We need volunteers with relevant skills/expertise in audio software such as Audacity/Windows 10, who can work on a digital audio recording system for our Talking Newspapers Service for the Blind. Volunteers are needed to help us maintain and keep this vital recording equipment in good running order.
