Welcome to Hamilton Sound

Does your eyesight make reading newspapers difficult?

We are a Talking Newspaper providing local news in audio form to blind and partially sighted people in Hamilton and surrounding district.

Our service is free of charge and is available to anyone who has a problem reading normal newsprint - you do not have to be a Registered Blind Person to receive Hamilton Sound if you can satisfy us that your sight is sufficiently defective.


There are a number of different ways to receive your weekly copy of Hamilton Sound.

Many listeners opt to receive their copy by post but listening on-line or on a smartphone app is becoming increasingly popular. Other methods include Podcast and Internet Radio.

We record the latest edition of the Hamilton Advertiser each week on a Thursday evening and listener's wallets are posted in time to allow delivery on Friday for ML3 post codes and Saturday for other post codes.

Hamilton Advertiser The latest edition will be available on this website at approximately 10pm on Thursdays.

We are grateful to the publishers of the Hamilton Advertiser for their continuing permission for us to use their news material
