Talking newspapers for blind and visually impaired people in Oxford & district

Oxtalk USB stick and local newspapers


Oxtalk the Talking Newspaper for the Blind.

From 15th April 2020 Oxtalk volunteers have been recording the Oxford city and district news items onto their phones whilst at home. These recordings have been forwarded to the technical officers who have compiled the final weekly recording.

There are a number of ways you can listen to Oxtalk in addition to the USB stick which you may already receive in the post. You can play Oxtalk directly from this website, where it’s also available as an MP3 download. You can listen on the phone via Talking Newspaper Services by dialling 0330 2233 452 and following the instructions, or you can listen using an Alexa or Google device if you have one. To set up Oxtalk on Alexa say “Alexa, enable the Oxtalk skill”. After that you can listen each week by simply saying “Alexa, open Oxtalk”. On a Google-enabled device, simply say “OK Google, play Oxtalk” and it will play the latest edition.

However you listen we hope you find Oxtalk’s talking newspaper keeps you in touch with the Oxford news.

Good wishes,

Margaret (Chair of Oxtalk)
