In Your Pocket is RNIB’s accessible newsagent, library and information delivered to your pocket.
Reading can make a world of difference to your enjoyment of life, which is why we’re excited to support In Your Pocket – a portable device for blind and partially sighted people, brought to you by RNIB, RealSAM and O2.
Designed to make reading the latest newspapers, magazines and books easier, In Your Pocket now features a new Samsung Galaxy handset device, with one large button and a great speaker for quality sound, O2 connectivity and RealSAM interactive speech software. It also comes with a subscription to RNIB Newsagent, access to RNIB Talking Books, as well as podcasts, Be My Eyes, Zoom, location information and unlimited calls – an unbeatable reading package starting at just £25.99 per month (composite VAT) – contract term 24 months, or a one off payment of £619 (composite VAT). Call the dedicated In Your Pocket help line to order on 01733 514612.
With voice control, In Your Pocket is easy to use, fuss-free and great for listening on the go. You can get reading right away, without the need for a computer or downloads. You will always have access to the latest editions of newspapers, magazines and podcasts, wherever and whenever you want to listen.
In Your Pocket now also helps you to stay in touch with friends and family with its new phone call features, all using spoken commands. You can now add contacts and make phone calls by simply saying: “add a contact for Miss Moneypenny”, to add a new contact. When making a call to contact, say “call James Bond” or for calls to phone numbers, say “call 07811 222 333”.
With In Your Pocket, there’s no waiting for the postman. Just say “read me The Guardian”, or “find books about gardening”, or “play me The Archers”, and In Your Pocket will oblige. You can also access other useful information, for example “what is the weather in Cambridge?”, or “what is the time in Paris?”. Asking “where am I” tells you your current location, along with the nearest street intersection.
RNIB Newsagent provides daily, weekly and monthly newspapers and magazines, and the RNIB Library provides you with access to over 32,000 Talking Books. In Your Pocket lets you access all of these on demand, along with over 50,000 podcasts from BBC, RNIB, TED Talks and much more. New sources of media are being added regularly, so you will always have new content to listen to.
