You can listen here on this page, or find instructions here on how to listen using the Talking Newspaper smartphone app or Amazon Alexa. If you’re not normally online, you may be eligible to receive our content by post, check the Receive page for more information.

Listen here to the latest edition and also the Somerset Sight magazine


You can also listen at any time by calling our listening line on 01278 244 245. It will cost only the same as a local call and once you’re connected you can listen to our latest edition. If you’d like to have more control then press 0 during playback for instructions on how to skip forwards and back, play and pause and so on. The system will remember which story you were listening, so if you have to hang up and call back you won’t start back at the beginning. This bookmark will only last until our next edition goes live though.

Smartphone App

You can find us on the Talking Newspaper app in the “South West” region. To install the app, just search your app store for “Talking Newspaper” and look for the app by the British Wireless for the Blind Fund (BWBF), or visit their webpage about the app.
