Phil Troll's wife and NTE secretary Sheila passed away on 4th May having been ill for some time. Our thoughts go out to Phil and to Sheila's family. For this reason the 2020 Virtual AGM has been postponed.

NTE, The Magazine for You?

Would you like to receive an audio magazine, produced in stereo every month, for Blind and Vision-Impaired people? The National Talking Express, which was started in September 1979, could be the one for you.

The audio magazine contains competitions (with prizes), interviews, feature articles, and a lot of useful information. You can also have your say in the Talk-Back section. Listen to an interview about NTE produced by Infosound

You can listen online free of charge here or on Sonata. However by becoming a member of NTE, you can support our cause and have it delivered on SD Card, USB stick, or MP3 CD (which can be played on a DAISY talking book player).

If you need a player that is able to play our content, and you need an easy to use device for playing the magazines, the National Talking Express may be able to provide a player from Kings Access Technology, thanks to generous support from the Grocers' Trust. A review of the players in question has been kindly provided by Jackie Brown. Read her Review here

You will also receive Media Roundup at no extra cost. This magazine was started about eight years ago by popular demand. This contains items and headlines from the media. (which can be read in full by request). News of new radio stations and TV channels, updates to electronic programme guides, etc.

If you would like to receive a sample copy of the magazines on tape or CD fill in the Contact form or call the NTE office on 0203 609 7255. Leave your name and number and we will get back to you.
