I've managed to adapt to deteriorating vision as a result of glaucoma for over 20 years and have always used a desktop computer (adapted to a large font) with little difficulty. I also have my beloved Kindle for reading and have managed to stay in touch with my Nokia phone but now my family are urging me to have a smartphone and/or a tablet as I realise I am missing out on the whole world of apps, shared photos and access to information when out and about. Unfortunately, my attempts at using borrowed smartphones to practise on have left me feeling very frustrated and sometimes pathetically reduced to tears! My husband and son just can't understand my difficulty with using a tiny screen keyboard and don't know how to help so have given up - which leaves me feeling even more useless! I'm very willing to learn but where can I find more help/advice with the easiest/most accessible phones/tablets for people like me to use? I just don't have the confidence to ask in a phone shop where I've already found that the assistants are unable to comprehend the difficulties of a partially sighted person. "Well, you can always make the font bigger" seems to be the stock answer to every problem! Is there anyone else out there with low vision and advancing years but who isn't yet ready to give up on technology?
