These audio articles were recorded as part of the Forgotten Wrecks of the First World War project for Talking Newspapers.
There are more than 500 local Talking Newspapers in the UK. They provide audio recordings (in a variety of formats) of local newspapers that are read out loud, recorded and edited by volunteers. The typical audience for Talking Newspapers is blind or partially sighted people.
The Forgotten Wrecks project worked with the Talking News Federation to create and distribute audio articles about the Forgotten Wrecks project for use by local Talking Newspapers around the country. The articles are available to listen to below.
We are very grateful to Chris Litton and the Southampton Area Talking News for their support in the production of some of our Audio Articles. They have kindly provided facilities, knowledge, skills and time, enabling us to improve the quality of these audio articles.
