If you have never used a computer but are losing your sight then the Dolphin Guide software is ideal for you. It enables you to carry out functions such as emailing friends and family, reading your own post, browsing the internet and playing computer games.
This software is designed to make using a computer as easy as possible. By talking through the computing processes for people that are blind, partially sighted or new to using a computer it is possible for them to carry out tasks that they may never have been able to do before. Everything is read out loud with human sounding voices so that the user is guided through each process with ease. By talking the user through each process it ensures that the user can confidently use the software without worrying about trying something new.
