ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED

    East Suffolk Association for the Blind and West Suffolk Sight have limited capabilities to provide demonstrations and some training for members on what is known as Assistive Technology.  These are basically computers using specialist software that enable visually impaired people to access all the services that sighted people might use on computers or tablets or smartphones.  These services include:-

        Writing letters;

        Scanning in personal correspondence and having it read out aloud to them;

        Keeping in touch with family and friends through email;

        Browsing the world-wide web;

        Doing shopping on line;

        Listening to music or a myriad of world-wide radio stations.

    Whatever your age, there is something for everyone.  If you would like to arrange for a demonstration please call one of the following:-
