Vision North Somerset can give you information about the following ways in which visually impaired people may continue to enjoy leisure activities:
Books by many popular authors are available to listen to on audio tape, CD’s or as MP3 files. These are available from libraries in North Somerset or via post from an organisation called the Calibre Audio Library.
The RNIB also provides a Talking Book Service.
Woodspring Talking News (WTN)
This is a local charity providing a weekly news tape for visually impaired people in North Somerset. The service keeps you up to date with what is happening in the area and there is no charge.
Audio Described Video Tapes
The action on the screen is accompanied by a verbal description to enhance the performance for visually impaired people. There are many current popular titles available from the RNIB.
Vision North Somerset can provide information about hotels with special facilities for people with sight loss so they can feel safe and secure and get the most out of their holiday.
We can also tell you about large print playing card, tactile dominoes and other games available from our Resource Centre.
