Our Talking Newspaper is distributed to listeners within Cardiff and District but our Magazine has listeners across South Wales.  We are based within Sight Life (formerly Cardiff Institute for the Blind) who generously provide us with our accommodation.

We also do recordings for Sight Life and give talks to local groups and have a stand at appropriate exhibitions. We have a purpose built studio within Sight Life / RNIB Cymru headquarters. This is a state of the art information and resource centre in the heart of Cardiff.

We now share a studio with RNIB's Connect Radio satellite station here in Cardiff. This gives both organisations the best possible facilities and opportunities to produce high quality productions and maximise use of studio time.  We produce both our publications on memory sticks.


This TN has 2 publications listed.
