Preseli Pembrokeshire Assembly Member Paul Davies has met with Sulwyn Thomas, the Chairman of Talking Books Wales at Siop Sian, a local business in Crymych. Talking Books Wales have been running since 1979 and they provide audio books to the blind, partially sighted and those having difficulties reading print. According to Disability Wales, sadly only 7 per cent of all printed material is available in accessible formats such as large print, audio, and braille; and only 3 per cent in the Welsh language.
Mr Davies said, "I was delighted to meet with Sulwyn Thomas and the team to hear more about Talking Books Wales. They provide an invaluable service to the visually impaired and I would encourage the people of Pembrokeshire, should they have a loved one with eyesight problems to visit their website and find out more about their products. Audiobooks are an important educational tool for people of all ages with eyesight difficulties, helping to culturally enrich their lives.
