Synapptic requires Android version 6 or above.
A basic installation of Synapptic requires approximately 200MB of space. This is equivalent to about 20 good quality photos. Unless your device is already struggling with a lack of storage, it will most likely have more than enough free space.
Full access to the Google Play Store is required so that Synapptic can download supporting apps such as the Google Keyboard, the Google App and printer apps, etc.
Note: Newer models of Huawei phones do not have access to the Google Play Store due to a dispute between Huawei and Google. Older models are unaffected. Please contact us if you are unsure whether your device has full access to the Play Store.
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. Thanks to the above, I was awarded a Blind Veterans UK Founder's Day Award for I T training earlier this year.
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.
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!
Synapptic gives the user the very best opportunity to feel part of - and contribute to - the modern world, despite any level of sight loss.
