Talking newspapers

Please note due to the the current Government lockdown and restrictions we are currently unable to record our talking newspapers.

Vista produces and records over 53,000 talking newspapers in English, Gujarati and Punjabi each year, which are sent out free of charge to people registered with sight loss across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. 

Our talking newspaper service features articles from local newspapers, keeping you up to date with what's happening in your area.

Our enthusiastic team of staff and volunteers bring you all the best news, entertainment, current affairs, lifestyle and specialist articles, meaning that you never miss out on your favourite topics.

Recordings can be posted to you on a CD or memory stick, or you can listen to and download our talking newspapers from Audioboom.
