Accessible guides to help you make the most of the technology you have in your home.
On this page you will find some simple user guides to help you make the most of the technology you have in your home. Whether it’s using the internet, joining video calls or simply phoning friends and family for a catch up chat.
We will be adding more information to this page over time. If you can’t find the information you need, you can contact one of our Sight Loss Advisors who will be able to support you with any technology questions. Please contact us.
All our guides open in Microsoft Word – we have found this is the best format for screen readers. When you click the button, a Word document will download.

TV Licence Information
If you are registered blind (severely sight impaired) then you can get a “blind concession TV Licence”. This gives you 50% off the cost of your TV Licence. Unfortunately you are not entitled to this if you are registered as partially sighted (sight impaired).
As always, if you have any further questions, or would like help to go through this content, please contact our sight loss advisors.
