Welcome to Exmouth & District Talking Newspaper
About our Service
We are a charity based in Devon, UK. Entertaining weekly digital recordings and quarterly magazines of local news are sent to blind and partially sighted listeners in the East Devon area. Articles are read from local newspapers and distributed by post on USB sticks. Pre-paid envelopes are provided for easy returns.
Online, our recordings are available on SoundCloud, Apple and TuneIn as podcasts. Subscribe and then directly launch from Amazon Alexa.
Alternatively, use Amazon Alexa to access the British Wireless for the Blind Fund’s Amazon Alexa Skill by saying ‘Alexa Enable Talking Newspapers’, followed by ‘Alexa ask Talking Newspaper for Exmouth Talking Newspaper’.
Or, use the British Wireless for the Blind Fund web player on their website.
