There’s no doubt this is a worrying time for all of us. But here at seescape, we wanted to let you know that we are doing everything we can to keep you – and our staff – safe.

We are closing our office at Wilson Avenue, Kirkcaldy from Tuesday, 24th March 2020 until further notice. Calls will be diverted to a member of staff and if required a member of our support services team will contact you to offer information and advice.

Please continue to follow updates on our website on facebook /seescapefife and twitter /seescapefife

We’re keeping a close eye on all developments and following the Government’s guidelines. We will keep you updated regularly.
Carl Hodson CEO


Who we are

seescape is the new operational name of Fife Society for the Blind.  After 150 years of serving those with a sight impairment in Fife, we decided it was time to refresh our name to take us in to the 21st century.

We see our mission as expanding horizons for people with sight impairment in Fife.

We aim to help make sight impaired people’s lives more fulfilled by empowering them to live and interact with their families, their communities and surroundings in a positive way.

A charity with more than 150 years’ experience, seescape provides people with sight impairment with access to support services, new technology and a community of friends.

Our commitment to our clients is that we will:

  • listen and act according to their needs
  • campaign for better services for people with a sight impairment
  • be a catalyst for change, and
  • work in partnership to deliver sustainable projects

Come and join
The Assistive Technology Social Hub…

Thursday June 18th
Seescape and Sight and Sound Technology are joining forces once again to ensure that our service users are being supported during this difficult time.

Our next session is entitled
'All About Android'

In this session, Sam will be joined by 'The Two Stuarts' who will be exploring some of the possibilities that Android makes available to braille users for use at home, on the go, at school or in the workplace.

Stuart Beveridge from seescape will take us on a tour of the many features the Polaris has to offer. We will investigate the Google Play Store and look at downloading third-party applications as well as the functionality and practical use of the Google Assistant feature.

Sight and Sound's own Braille expert, Stuart Lawler will also be on-hand to answer any questions relating to our product range.

This session is also suited to teachers, parents and others who support users and who wish to improve their understanding of accessible braille devices. As always there will be lots of time for discussion, so bring along your questions and we’ll be happy to answer them!
If you would like some assistance with your existing products, if you would like to hear more about the latest and most advanced assistive technology or if you would just like to have a chat then please join us for our upcoming online social hub event. All you have to do is register via the link below and the necessary login information will be sent to you by email.

Register in advance for this meeting:

“For most people, technology makes things easier. For those with a disability, it makes things possible!”

Now more than ever assistive technology is invaluable to those with sight loss or visual impairment. We have a solution that could be hugely beneficial to you or a family member so please do come and join other AT users as they share their own experiences and learn a few tips and tricks along the way…
