Press release from: Dolphin Computer Access

A Worcester technology company is partnering with Kent Association for the Blind and other sight loss organisations and charities to deliver a 3 day roadshow in Kent.

KAB is a local charity and service provider supporting sight impaired people within the county to live independent lives through information, skills training and support. As part of their commitment to the local community, they are bringing together a group of exhibitors to showcase products and services available to people who are visually impaired.

Dolphin Computer Access, whose headquarters are in Worcester, develops software to enable people who are blind or partially sighted to use computers in the same way as their sighted peers. Dolphin believes that everyone should be able to use a computer, whatever their level of sight, and design and develop software from the ground up to help people achieve that.

With a range of products designed to meet different sight needs, Dolphin products cater for young and old, computer savvy or technically inexperienced and those with partial sight loss, worsening vision or without sight. People who benefit from Dolphin products include children and young people in education, people in employment, and older people who may never have used a computer before but soon find themselves emailing friends and family, or reading audiobooks through inbuilt product features.

The 3 day roadshow is designed to enable as many people as possible across the county to explore the options and support available to them. With a range of organisations including Hi Kent, Guide Dogs for the Blind, Blind Veterans UK, International Glaucoma Association, Macular Society, British Wireless for the Blind, Calibre Audio Library and Enhanced Vision, there is something available for everyone.

The events start at 10am, are completely free to attend, and open to anyone who may benefit from finding out more about sight loss support.

Wednesday 20th April at St John the Baptist Church, St Johns Hill, Sevenoaks, TN13 3TX
Thursday 21st April at Kent Association for the Blind, 72 College Road, Maidstone, Kent, NE15 6SJ
Tuesday 10th May at St Mary's Parish Centre, Cannon Street, Dover, CT16 1BY

For more information contact Kent Association for the Blind on 01622 691 357.

At Dolphin we believe that everyone should be able to use a computer, whatever their level of sight. We design and develop software from the ground up to help people achieve that. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never used a computer or are tech savvy but need help with accessibility; we have a product to meet your needs. From crystal clear magnification through to speech output, our products enable people to work, learn and play.
