Technology for Life

At RNIB, we believe in the power of technology to assist people with sight loss to be independent, access information, grasp opportunities and to b​e creativ​e.

We recognise the changing landscape as the world we live in becomes increasingly digitalised, and are excited by the potential this holds. We have lots of information to help you whether you are starting out or want more in depth help. 

Technology resource hub: access the latest technology facts, tips and guides

Technology is evolving everyday. It can be daunting knowing where to start with the thousands of products available from high street shops. Increasingly these have accessibility built in, or from specialist suppliers of products designed for people with sight loss. 

Our guides and factsheets will help you to understand the basics of different products, keep you up-to-date in the world of technology, and build on or get your technology knowledge flowing!
