Assistive Technology

Devon in Sight can provide advice and training on the use of specialist Assistive Technology such as screen magnifiers, screen readers and speech software.

“People often think they can’t use technology because of their sight loss. In fact they can – and it can actually be a real help. People with sight loss can use technology for email, home shopping, home banking, scanning letters, keeping up to date on news stories and many other tasks”. Darren Walker, Assistive Technology Training Volunteer

As part of our service we can also demonstrate the accessibility features already built-in to many computers, tablets and mobile phones, enabling you to either magnify what is on the screen or have the computer or phone read it to you.

We run an Assistive Technology workshop the first Friday of every month at our Resource Centre in Topsham and we can also provide information on other technology advice and guidance available in the local area from organisations like Action for Blind People and the RNIB.

Do get in touch if we can help you with your IT issues.
