Wisbech and District Talking Newspaper celebrates momentous first digital recordings

A charity which supports people with hearing difficulties enjoyed a momentous first on Wednesday.
Wisbech & District Talking Newspaper sent out its first recording produced on USB sticks via Royal Mail’s free Articles for the Blind postal service.
The digital recordings are the result of the phenomenally successful New Technology for Talking Newspaper (TN4TN) fundraising appeal, which allowed the charity to buy all the necessary new equipment to produce them.
Although there was much to celebrate, the charity’s annual general meeting was also tinged with sadness.
The newspaper said goodbye to two of its long-serving committee members – treasurer Derek Mews and committee member Joan Wiletts, although she will be continuing as a narrator.
