Our Talking Newspaper service is free of charge including free return postage.
Listeners using our free postal service will receive a padded plastic wallet every week containing a USB Memory Stick on which is recorded the current week’s edition of Hamilton Sound. It’s usually delivered on a Saturday morning but some listeners with ML3 Post Codes may even receive their wallet on Fridays (the same day as the Hamilton Advertiser’s publication date).
You will need a USB Memory Stick Player to play back the Memory Stick we send. Most players supplied by other Talking Newspapers, Magazines or Talking Books services should work OK. Contact us if you are in any doubt. If you need to purchase a player please refer to this helpful guide.
Although our service is free we need confirmation from a suitable person, if you are not registered blind, that the quality your reading vision prevents you from reading N12 type. This is necessary to comply the regulations relating to the Royal Mail 'Articles for the Blind' concession which facilitates our free postal service. A doctor, optician, social worker or other health professional may provide this confirmation. If we need you to complete a form we will send it with your first copy of Hamilton Sound.
