  • Welcome to our new website

    Since Otley & District Talking Newspaper was launched in 1984 there have been many technological advancements in sound recording and the delivery of audio files to listeners, and we've had to keep up! We made the transition from tape to CD many years ago and then in 2013 we switched from CD to USB memory sticks.

    2018 brings more change and we are really excited to let you know about our new website, which allows people to listen to our Talking Newspaper online. We also hope the website will allow us to reach prospective volunteers and keep existing volunteers and listeners informed with developments at the Talking Newspaper.

    Another important role the website will fulfil is to allow new listeners to easily subscribe to the USB by Post service. The development of the website doesn't mean that we're moving away from providing that service and we anticipate it will remain the most popular way for our listeners to access the Talking Newspaper.

    If you have any questions or comments about the website please do get in touch. You can reach us via the contact page on this website or by using Twitter.
