Roll up to help talking newspaper
2:00pm Wednesday 2nd July 2014 in News
VOLUNTEERS are needed at the South West Dorset Talking Newspaper, a free weekly for people who are blind or visually impaired.
The organisation is run by a team of very dedicated volunteers but more people are needed to help with the technical side.
Eleanor smith, of SWDTN, said: “We only have a few volunteers who have learnt to record and produce the magazine, and we need some more. “We need some people who have a knowledge of computers and would like to be trained to use the software involved. “It is very rewarding to know that you are helping in such a direct way, and of course we are a friendly team.”
She added: “If you know anyone who could help please ask them. We are worried that we will not have enough technicians to produce the paper. “It only involves a few hours, every so often, not even every week and we have a rota system for our news teams.”
Shifts would be for a couple of hours from 9am and involves collecting, sorting, and copying the magazine onto CDs and memory sticks. Training will be provided.
