How our Publications are Produced

Both the Talking Newspaper and the Talking Magazine are recorded in our purpose built studio. The recordings are made on a special computer designed to produce a Master Memory Stick (USB).   Hundreds of copies are then duplicated from this 'Master' and sent through the post to our listeners.
The Talking Newspaper is a weekly digest of local news edited from the South Wales Echo and is recorded by teams of volunteers. It features the very latest news and articles of general interest that are not often reported on the radio or TV. The recording is produced on a Thursday evening.  Following the completion of the 'Master’ recording the team then turn their attention to duplicating the Memory Sticks (USB). These are then put into individually addressed postal wallets and packed into mail sacks ready for collection the next day. The listeners receive their personal copies on Saturday morning.  After listening to the programme they have to be returned to us as soon as possible so that the next edition can be forwarded.
They are returned, again free of charge, by reversing the address label so that our address is shown.

Talking Magazine is produced.
