Volunteer Newsletter Winter 2022/23
Listen with Google
STN has been available through Amazon Alexa for some time, but if you have a Google device – for instance Google Nest or Google Home – you will be pleased to know you can now listen to Sheffield Talking News through Google too. Read about it here.
Changes to our online services
Unfortunately our previous online audio player is no longer available to us, but instead you can now listen to the latest editions of our 3 publications immediately, on our web site, using audio players provided by the British Wireless for the Blind Fund (BWBF). Click these links for the latest News, Magazine or Out and About. There is no need to register for the online service.
Our podcast streams have now been consolidated into a single channel which will normally carry the latest two editions of the News, the most most recent magazine and a couple of Out and About articles. These are now hosted on PodBean (link opens in a new tab) and other podcast services such as iTunes, Google and Audible. Our podcasts can be played online or downloaded for offline listening.
Sadly the arrangement by which listeners could listen to Sheffield Talking News via the telephone by dialling a local number has now ended. If you were a telephone user please get in touch with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning 0114 278 0440 so we can advise on other ways you can listen to us.
