A talking newspaper for Bradford on Avon

The town council is actively working to make the information we produce and publish more accessible.

We’ve adopted Plain English – as much as possible – in public documents and working towards updating our website for better access to local democracy.

This has led us to explore the idea of a talking newspaper for the town council. The NHS says the purpose of a talking newspaper is to bring print to life for blind, visually impaired and print-disabled people.

A print-disability is a difficulty or inability to read printed material.

We are running a short survey to access the need and desire in Bradford on Avon for a talking newspaper from the town council. If you are interested or know of a family member, friend or neighbour who would be interested, please complete our Google Forms survey.

A short demo has been recorded and is available below.
