2 hours on a Friday afternoon, every 4 weeks
WTN are looking for a volunteer to record editions of local news for our Visually-Impaired listeners across North Somerset. The recording is performed using an audio mixer and a computer. An understanding of audio recording equipment is not compulsory. Full training will be provided. You would be part of a group of 4 recordists, therefore you would be required to manage a recording session, every 4 weeks. Recordings sessions are held every Friday at 5pm.
Each recording session would last around 2 hours. The end product of a recording session is a Master memory stick which will later be copied by one of our team of Copiers who will post the copies in dedicated wallets to our 180+ listeners. WTN provide this service, every week, and have done since 1986.
The weekly recording and distribution of audio version of local news and information to Visually-Impaired People in North Somerset since 1986.
An understanding of audio recording equipment is not compulsory. Full training will be provided. Ability to communicate – you would be in a recording session with a team of 3 readers for 2 hours or-so, every 4 weeks. Ability to understand procedures and ability to work with a desktop computer.
The knowledge that 2 hours a week, every 4 weeks will help to include people with severe sight disabilities within the general community. The opportunity to meet new people (team readers, editors, copiers, WTN Committee members, etc.) We can’t promise ‘fun’ but we have volunteers who have been with us since “Day One” in 1986 and they still find WTN very worthwhile
