“Without technology I would be completely lost.”
Deafblind Sense member
Technology in all of its forms has much to offer people with sight and hearing impairments.
Through our pages we’ve tried to unpack how technology can help deafblind people.
Under the headings of Computing; Entertainment; Everyday living; and Communication we’ve categorised aids specifically designed to support and provide a real boost in a wide range of areas or situations.
We’ve listed stockists and a brief description of technological aids for deafblind people from special equipment to assist around the home and with independent living, to devices that link-up with computers, ingenious pieces of kit that work towards your security and peace of mind, to technology that expands or enhances your learning and entertainment.
If you’d like to arrange an informal meeting or assessment to talk about how you cope with everyday life, or which aids and adaptations might help you, please get in touch with our Information and Advice service.
Sense also campaigns to ensure that technology is a tool for communication, adding quality to the contact that people with dual sensory impairment have with others.
We've just launched a blog which will cover all aspects of assistive technology.
