Special Message from Peter Fraser

Hello folks and hope you are all keeping safe and well in the present situation the world finds itself in.

Just to inform you that all Playback publications have been suspended for the moment and it could be a few months before we can continue recording our publications. If you need any further information contact me Peter Fraser by e-mail or phone 0141 776 3395. Our studio in Glasgow is also closed for the present with our member of staff John Green working from home.


Welcome to Playback!

Our website contains lots of information for you about the Playback recording service, based in Glasgow, but providing professional-quality recorded material to areas all over the UK, as well as parts of the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Set up to provide a free service to blind and visually impaired people, Playback is also available for individual and commercial recording needs at a small charge or donation. We have never refused to record any material requested - our philosophy is that if it's available in print, it should be available on tape for all audiences to access. Please feel free to browse our site and find out a little bit about Playback. You can contact us at the address or numbers provided, or e-mail us now to arrange the solution to your audio recording needs!

In May 2016 we celebrated 40 years of the Playback Service. We produced a short booklet outlining the history of the service and it's available to read as a PDF file
or you may wish to enjoy the booklet
as an audio download.
