Hi Claire,

I thought EaysyReader did audio as well as text?  I'll check back, but I'm
going to be on the road until Thursday.

All the best

Steve

Hi Steve, EasyReader is ok if she wants the text versions of the newspapers
etc, to read with either the synthetic voices or her braille display, but I
think what she wants to access is the actual audio newspapers and play them
that way, that's how I understand it. If it helps, the website she has given
me is www.tnauk.org.uk.
