[access-uk] Re: Announcement National Talking Newspapers and Magazines

If you've not used this recently, you should take a look. You no longer have to 
download files which I used to find a pain. Once you've tapped your password 
in, you can read newspapers on the web, all on one page, with headers for each 
article title that you can easily skim through. They're very long pages and can 
be anything from around 30 articles for Disability Now up to around 300 for The 
Sunday Times. And as I say, all on one page so you can just hit the letter H to 
jump to the next heading. And the next. And the next. 

It's better than it's ever been and newspapers are available early in the 
morning, certainly many before I get in to work at 8am. 

It costs 39 pounds for an annual subscription. Very good value.

I have been using this service for a number of years and it works fine.  The 
range of magazones is limited and I am not a newspaper reader but I regukarky 
read 2 weeklys and one monthly and look forward to theor arrival in my email 
box. I can now get the same content free of charge on the web, but the 
cpnvenience of having this arrive as plain text, ready for me read, is worth 
the reasonable annual charge.  Until or if services like Amazon Kindel are trul 
accessible, this service is invaluable.

Hi all.
This looks promising to me at least. Now I live on my own, it would be 
wonderful to read newspapers and magazines that everybody else reads in an 
accessible format. The pricing looks pretty good as well, £39 a year, working 
out to just 75p a week. I have downloaded some sample newspapers and magazines 
which they offer as a free trial. So will read them and go from there.
Take care.
