Thank you for visiting Three Rivers Talking Newspaper.
Three Rivers Talking Newspaper provides an audio-based local news service for people living in the Waveney area who have a visual impairment or other reading disability.
Our volunteers meet every Friday to record an audio format of local news and information, principally drawn from the Beccles & Bungay Journal, which is copied onto USB/memory sticks and sent out to listeners by post. We also produce a quarterly audio magazine, Waveney Valley Sounds. The service is entirely free of charge to listeners.
However, because of Covid-19, we’ve been unable to record in our studio. So, since late March, we’ve been recording from home and making our latest recordings available online. But, as lockdown eases, we’ve now returned to sending out USB/memory sticks through the post but will continue to make our recordings available online for those who prefer the convenience.
You can listen online to our latest recordings here . You can also listen to our latest weekly newspaper recording at the British Wireless for the Blind Fund website here (and in their smartphone app called Talking Newspaper) and at My Talking Newspaper here .
It’s also available by phone on 0330 22 33 452 (follow the prompts), and on Alexa by enabling the skill ‘My Talking Newspaper’ and saying ‘Alexa, open my talking newspaper’ – ‘Alexa, play Three Rivers Talking Newspaper’.
If you know of anyone who would benefit from our service, please get in touch. Similarly, we would be delighted to hear from you if you are interested in joining our team of enthusiastic volunteers.
