Talking newspapers for blind and visually impaired people in Oxford & district

Welcome to Oxtalk, the Oxford and District Talking Newspaper based in the beautiful city of Oxford, UK.

We aim to provide visually impaired people in the Oxford area with a weekly digest of news culled from the local newspapers.  The service is free and is available on memory stick or direct from this website. On request a member of Oxtalk can visit the new listener to take along a player and explain how our service works.

Each week teams from our 50-strong band of volunteers prepare items for recording, read them onto a master, copy them so that each listener receives a memory stick, and put them in our yellow pouches for despatch via the Royal Mail.

Anyone in the Oxford District who is visually impaired may take this service by contacting us via e-mail on mail@oxtalk.org.uk or by phoning the Listeners’ Co-ordinator on 07599 803 369, and of course anyone at all may listen to our latest recordings via this website.

We are always pleased to hear from anyone who might like to join us as a volunteer, whether to help with newsgathering, technical help, reading, copying or fundraising.  Please e-mail us at mail@oxtalk.org.uk.

For lots more information about our latest News, our History, and exactly how we produce the Talking News  please see the subject headings to the left of this page.
