What’s next for the Social Hub…?

Staying in touch with family and friends has never been more important. In Your Pocket, by RealSAM, is a fully voice-controlled Mobile Phone for the Blind and Visually Impaired.


When: Feb 18, 2021 10:00 AM

Topic: The AT Social Hub: Stay Connected with In Your Pocket!


Register in advance for this webinar:

Designed to be easy to use, In Your Pocket is able to Make Calls, Read Messages, listen to Books or Newspapers and get Navigation Assistance just by Using your Voice. No need to learn a complicated touch screen or struggle with reading small buttons; just press one button and talk. In Your Pocket can also connect directly to Bluetooth enabled hearing aids.

We are very excited to be joined by Natasha Beauharnais and the team from RealSAM who will be demonstrating the In Your Pocket device as well as answering all of your questions and queries. Myself and the 2 Stuart’s will also be on hand to discuss any other tech topics!

As always, please do come armed with your questions that you would like to share with the other Social Hub members and we will all muck in to find a solution! This session is also suitable for teachers, parents and assistive technology beginners.


“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, a visual impairment or learning disability. 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 we share our experiences and support each other along the way.
