Hear and Now is a digitally recorded weekly talking newspaper presenting stories, features and information from our local newspapers – The Dawlish Gazette and Teignmouth News and from other local sources.
It is made available to listeners on a reusable USB memory stick which is delivered free of charge to our listeners by first class post, sent out on the day of production – usually a Friday.
Our listeners are those who are blind or have poor eyesight as well as anyone who has difficulties with reading or handling printed matter. It is also available to the elderly and housebound – in fact anyone who welcomes a friendly voice bringing them the local news and information each week in their own homes.
Hear and Now is also available here on our website each week for listeners who have internet access. Copies also go to local libraries and nursing homes.
