About Cumbernauld Audio News
Cumbernauld Audio News is a group of volunteers who provide the blind and partially sighted with a means of keeping up to date with their local newspaper The Cumbernauld News & The Kilsyth Chronicle.
We have been in existence for almost 30 years and, until recently, sent out weekly audio cassettes to our listeners free of charge. We say ‘until recently’ because, due to circumstances out with our control we have had to source new premises and progress to digital media.
That was in December 2011 and since then a combination of hard work and some gratefully accepted help from many sources meant we could re-launch the 'all new Cumbernauld Audio News' service. We now record in state of the art facilities generously offered by local radio station Revival FM and send out the recordings on pen drives. We have been able to provide our listeners with Sceptre II audio players custom designed for the blind and partially sighted and hope to have the weekly recording online in the near future - all free of charge.
Historically we shared premises with similar organistaions providing audio recordings of The Celtic View and The Rangers News on a fortnightly basis - we will be continuing this service under the CAN name.
The Celtic View have begun training on our systems and should be producing recordings soon, we will update the site regularly with progress reports.
Production of the Rangers publication has been suspended for the time being so, for now, we cannot offer this service but when this changes we'll endevour to get recordings out.
Please take your time and peruse the website, check out our media page where you will find news articles about CAN.
If you have any questions regarding our service or if you would like to receive a recording for yourself or someone you know please get in touch via the CONTACT US page, fill out the form and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
