Listening with an App

The Talking News Federation (TNF) and British Wireless for the Blind Fund (BWBF) have joined forces once again to bring together local Talking Newspapers from across the UK.

A mobile application that can be accessed independently from any smartphone or tablet. The Talking Newspaper app can be downloaded by users to their own smart devices for free from both Apple and Android stores; and is available to people with a variety of difficulties reading text, such as dyslexia – not just the blind and partially sighted.

The app features over 200 regional Talking Newspapers, making it easier than ever to keep up with what’s going on in your own community or in areas where you may have friends or family.
