Finding a local reader
I am wanting to read a book (its a semi technical book about the Apollo Guidance computers).
Even before I became disabled I am dyslexic and dyspraxic.
Now I am not able to read more then a few sentences. It is not available as an audio book and anyway I have found that unless I heard it before I was ill, I cannot follow it. This is a shame as I have an enormous repository of audio books.
Anyway to the point.
I am trying to find someone local that could read it to me. It would of course need many sessions.
Has anyone any idea who I could contact (I live in Cheshire) to try to sort this out?
It's not as easy as people think reading to someone. My wife has tried and it did not work.
