[access-uk] Re: digital radio

Hi Trace,

What part of the known world do you live in? I'm not sure if there are still any specialist social workers for the blind anywhere, but the general run-of-the-mill social worker is supposed to be able to refer you to the right places.

If Leicester is anything to go by, the social worker will give you a general assessment, then anything more technical is supposedly handled by our local Blind Society. As they have a Service Level Agreement with social services, they are effectively the "blind" wing of Social Services, and get funding accordingly.

Wireless for the Blind Fund is at

http://www.blind.org.uk/

Good wishes,
Vince.

We don't have a social worker for the blind around here, no idea who to contact, trust me, no one would know what I was talking about.

How do you contact the wireless for the blind directly?

Hi Trace,

I'm afraid I think you might be stuck there. You'd be best talking to your social services about it.

I have the Symphony and no, it doesn't talk but I think what is being discussed is a new one from Roberts. As a matter of interest, if you have never had a radio from the wireless for the blind organisation, you can get the current Roberts model.

As I understand it, the Roberts Symphony doesn't talk.

It's good to know that another product has joined the list of those which
talked briefly and then were forever silent. Well, My Sharp Talking
clock/calculator is still talking after some 23 years.

Hi,

I heard it from Rose in the RNIB resource centre in Judd Street. She said
the Pure radio is likely to be taken off the market soon because they're not
getting as many sales as they expected but that Roberts are bringing one out
this year, she didn't know exactly when though. Vince is probably right
though, Rose was probably talking about the radio he described.

radio.
