RNIB Cymru transforms Roald Dahl stories into 'Talking Books'

Welsh sight loss charity RNIB Cymru is marking the centenary of Roald Dahl today, by turning his books into Welsh language 'Talking Books', for blind and partially sighted readers.

Roald Dahl, who lived in Cardiff for many years, was no stranger to the charity's Talking Books library - which includes over 23,000 audio recordings.

He voiced 'James and the Giant Peach' himself in English.

Now RNIB Cymru want to make his works more accessible for Welsh speakers, bringing in professional narrators to voice his stories in Welsh, for the first time.

The charity produces a number of Talking Books from their Cardiff studios every year.

Earlier this year a series of events were held in the capital to mark the centenary of the birth of Roald Dahl.
