Lothiansound Talking Newspaper

Lothiansound Talking Newspaper

This is a free service for people who are blind, partially sighted or no longer able to read the newspaper.

They provide a weekly recording of the local news read mainly from the Edinburgh Evening News and a monthly recording of articles from The Scots Magazine. These are posted out on a memory stick and they can even provide you with players as well! The service was founded in 1988 and is run entirely by volunteers.
