with Synapptic

Synapptic software is specially-designed technology, which makes it simple for you to use a mobile phone or tablet when you have sight loss.

Synapptic works on mainstream Android devices and will help you stay connected easily to friends and family, retain your independence and access a world of entertainment at your fingertips.

It’s easy to find your way around as everything on the screen is read out to you and comes with magnification, so you can alter the size of any text. Synapptic also comes with easy, spoken menus, voice recognition and a help page for every screen.

Is Synapptic right for me?

Synapptic gives you a clear and logical system for finding your way around a phone or tablet easily, when you have sight loss.

It’s ideal to use if you’re new to technology, if you lack the confidence to fully embrace technology or you feel let down by the accessibility on other devices, such as iphones.

Choose Synapptic if:

  • You’re looking for an easy way to stay independent and connected when you have sight loss
  • You want to use the same phone or tablet that everyone else is using
  • You want a single device that can help you with your everyday tasks
  • You want a device that can evolve with you, if your sight changes.

I have been using my Synapptic phone for a couple of months now and I love it. Synapptic software has opened up a whole new world to me. I am now even exploring taking photos with the camera. Just think - 6 months ago I could not even do text messages let alone think about attaching photos! I hope everyone else is getting as much pleasure from their Synapptic phone as I am.

Sandra, Chester

I just wanted to thank you all for the wonderful service you provide to people with sight loss. I have just bought my second synapptic phone and everybody has been so very patient and helpful. The service you provide is fantastic and your patience endless! You do a brilliant job.

Cathy, Portsmouth

If I did not have my Synapptic tablet, I would be lost without it. I can keep in touch with all my friends on email and Facebook. The speech recognition is the icing on the cake – wonderful!

Joseph, Somerset

I was not a mobile phone user previously but now use it for calls, sending e-mails and texts. Also, I frequently use YouTube, Internet radio and talking books! Although I have a little sight, I feel I could use it without any sight.

Your Synapptic devices are the best things I have used in the ten years I have been blind!

In the course of my work helping vulnerable adults to use computers, I have found Synapptic gives the user the very best opportunity to feel part of - and contribute to - the modern world, despite any level of sight loss.

Wanda Skelham, Leicestershire CareOnline Training Officer

I really would not like to be without my Synapptic tablet...I would be lost without it. I can keep in touch with all my friends on email and Facebook. The speech recognition is the icing on the cake – wonderful!

Margaret, Somerset

[Synapptic is] excellent for people with poor or no eyesight...It is so innovative…Excellent features include the links to Google Contacts, audiobooks (including RNIB) and speaking emails...This company should be thanked and supported for helping people with poor eyesight.

Peter, Devon

Although I have been registered blind since 1978, Synapptic has become an increasing integral part of my daily life.

Bryn, Wales

I honestly wouldn’t have believed it possible for an audiobook selection and download to be so quick and straightforward - very impressed. It will make a huge difference to me for one, as I get through books like nobody’s business.

Di, Blackpool

I lost my sight 6 years ago and my phone, with its Synapptic software, plays a significant part in me being able to enjoy a fairly independent lifestyle.
