Every fortnight, Chichester Area Talking News (CATN) produces an hour of local news on memory stick and CD for blind and partially sighted people in the Chichester, Bognor Regis, Midhurst and Petworth areas. That is to say - the areas covered by the three editions of the local Observer newspaper - from the coastal towns and villages as far north to Haslemere, east to Elmer and west to Emsworth. CATN is also available on your Amazon digital device. Simply say "ALEXA enable My Talking News" and follow the setup. 

Founded in 1975, CATN celebrated its 1,000th Edition in August 2014.  It is produced by a team of over 90 volunteers and each issue is mailed to nearly 400 listeners.  CATN also produces a quarterly magazine recording called INSIGHT.
