Talking News charity needs an engineer

THE CHARITY Roundabout Talking News is in need of a sound engineer and we wondered if any of your readers would like to help us out.

We produce free weekly recordings on memory sticks as well as cassette tapes giving the visually impaired people of Horsham and the surrounding district the chance to keep up to date with the local news from the West Sussex County Times.

Volunteers for the sound engineer role would need to be a confident/experienced Windows PC user. Previous experience with audio recording software would be an advantage but is not necessary as training will be provided.

The particular programme in use at the present time is Adobe Audition 2.0 with which training would be given to record the audio files in a studio setting.

During the training period applicants would need to be available between 5.45pm and 9pm on Thursday evenings for instruction for one month and then on a regular basis every other month on Thursday evenings possibly with supervision until deemed suitably confident with the equipment.

This is a valuable service and we need to continue it for the benefit of the visually impaired of Horsham. If anyone is willing to be considered for this volunteer vacancy would they please get in touch with me at or telephone men on 01403 266924.
