RNIB has collaborated with Computer Recyclers to provide an affordable solution for blind and partially sighted people with no access to a computer at home.
This partnership has created a low cost and accessible computer package that incorporates everything you need to get online. This includes free, NonVisual Desktop Access reader (NVDA) and the award-wining natural Text-to-Speech program IVONA. In addition to the Core Microsoft Software operating system, information pack including Braille, audio CD, and Word Document, plus free help from RNIB Technology Support Squad and Charity U Can Do IT, who will visit customers in their own home to help set up and get them started on their computer.
With many restrictions facing the everyday lives of blind and partially sighted people, a lot of people find that using a computer represents a positive life change, increasing their independence by making it easier do some of the things they did before losing their sight.
Packages start at £159 for a desktop computer or £229 for a laptop. For more information please contact Computer Recyclers UK on 01443 434675 or visit their website: www.computerrecyclersuk.com
