Audio newsletter for partially-sighted residents

Keeping the community updated on site news and developments is crucial to fostering positive relationships with local residents. Newsletters are the typical format for these updates, but this can prove difficult for partially-sighted people.

See the examples below for how one site addressed this:

  • A site engineer developed an audio version of their monthly newsletter.
  • The audio newsletter was created by using a piece of software called ‘Daisy’.
  • The newsletter is issued through the council database to people registered blind or partially-sighted so they can listen to site updates.

This initiative demonstrates respect for the community and acknowledgement of individual needs.
