Who are the Volunteers?
The Talking Newspaper is run by volunteers working in four teams for a few hours, on a four-weekly rota. If you would like to join us please contact us.
We are currently short of recorders. If you can use a word processor and drag/drop a file, please contact us.
In order of operation we have
Cutting Editors and Sub-Editors who collect the Chronicles, and select articles to be read out.
Readers who read the prepared articles. They usually work in a team of four and are the voices you hear on your Talking Newspaper.
Recorders who record the newspaper to a computer, mix in any music, prepare a master memory stick and release the newspaper to the Internet.
Copiers who take the envelopes received from listeners, check for problems and prepare the envelopes to be sent out. They copy the memory sticks and put them into the envelopes. Finally they post the envelopes.
House Visitors who visit the listeners to help with the equipment or maybe just to make contact. House Visitors will always let you and any representative know before they visit.
