SummaryWe require volunteer readers to read news articles for visually impaired listeners. You would be part of a team who record every 5 weeks for 3 hours.
Corinium Talking News provide a weekly CD of local news to a number of visually impaired listeners in the Cirencester area.
Our organisation is divided into 5 teams of 5 individuals each, meaning that each team records once every 5 weeks (4 teams on a Saturday morning, one team on a Friday afternoon). The recordings result in an 80 minute CD containing the latest local news, meaning each recording session lasts around 2 hours. News articles are generally read from the local Wilts and Glos Standard newspaper.
Volunteer readers need to be comfortable speaking into a microphone, and have a clear spoken voice.
We are a friendly team made up of a range of ages but all with a desire to help the local community.
We also have opportunities to be a reserve reader (to be contacted when necessary) or read for our monthly magazine, which require less commitment, so do get in touch if you think you can spare a few hours to help.
About Corinium Talking News
We also supply a number of former residents who previously received our service and, although they have since moved away, they like to keep up to date with events in the district.
We produce a weekly compact disc with 80 minutes of content from The Wilts & Glos Standard. This content includes:
In addition we also supply an 80 min monthly Magazine CD which contains articles of a more lighthearted nature, various interviews & features, along with contributions from a number of regular ‘special guests’.
These CDs are recorded and produced in our specialist studios and are easily navigated to enable listeners to dip in and out of the local news or magazine programs, just as we would dip in and out of a daily newspaper or magazine.
