If you need to read a premium article in the local papers (I.e. paywall), and are a Singapore residents (with SingPass or an NLB account), you can access The Straits Times, The Business and six other SPH publications for free.
The free access was introduced in late April this year during “Circuit Breaker”, the mitigation response to the COVId-19 pandemic. This service was been extended indefinitely.
Just visit this NLB page https://eresources.nlb.gov.sg/main/sphnewspapers. You can increase the text magnification to a comfortable size.
On a related note, NUS staff and students have access to newspaper and media archives in Factiva and Nexis Uni; just look up https://libportal.nus.edu.sg/.
