Welcome to the home of Sheffield Talking News.
Our mission is to provide a weekly overview of local news content to blind and visually impaired people in the city. We currently have over 400 clients registered to use our free service, and each week our editors choose an interesting balance of news and feature stories, which are read aloud by our team of volunteers. 

We are always on the lookout for better and faster ways to bring the news to your door - our clients can listen online, on a local telephone call, via our free postal memory stick service or even via Amazon's Alexa.

Whether a listener, a volunteer, a donor or someone who wants a recording made, please explore the site to see what we have to offer.

What's Happening?
Sheffield Talking News is currently looking to find a new volunteer Secretary. They need to be computer literate and able to deal with Windows 10, Office  and Publisher. Being available on a Tuesday morning and once a month on a Thursday evening would also be a great advantage. A more detailed description of what is can be found in section 2 of our Volunteer Roles page.
