There are many ways of getting the Crewe and Nantwich Talking Newspaper. Our "traditional" option is to send out memory sticks, which can be played on a computer, a compatible mp3 player, or on a player that we can provide in some circumstances.

The content is the same whether you listen via USB stick or online.

Online versions of the Talking Newspaper are usually updated on Wednesday morning. The advantage with listening online is that you will receive your Talking Newspaper more quickly, as you do not have to wait for the USB stick to be delivered.
