Part of the Royal Blind Group. www.scottishwarblinded.org join us for part two.  Access to Audio Ambassadors (www.cueandreview.com/promotion)  Cue and Review - "Print Speaking to the Blind"  are looking for people to demonstrate how visually impaired people can access daily talking newspapers on their tablet, laptop or even on their phone. The role involves you contacting venues such as libraries health centres, hospitals and day care centres asking them to allow you to bring our display stand along and to talk to their clients. We are not just looking to speak to visually impaired people but also their sighted family and friends. We would look to recruit teams of two that would be able to act as ambassadors for the charity and be able to drive to each venue with the display materials.
