Award-winning solution for people who are blind or visually impaired
Synapptic successfully addresses typical challenges of standard smartphones such as:
Even large text options remain too small for many.
The options for increasing contrast and changing color schemes are too limited.
The built-in screen readers are too complex in Android and with the iPhone.
The Reading Machine uses a process known as OCR (Optical Character Recognition), which is used to convert text to speech.
Photograph a document and have it spoken out! Operates by just tapping the screen. Simple to do, fast and accurate.
EASY TO ACCESS HELP
Help is available throughout Synapptic. Just about every screen has a Help icon in the top right-hand corner, which displays help documents and videos for that particular screen.
In addition to the Help on every screen, the Help option on the Main Menu allows all the Help documents and videos to be searched.
Our unique in-built Lifeline® support feature means you’re only ever 3 taps away from accessing our Remote Support service. Whatever screen you’re on, we can access your phone remotely and provide technical support wherever you are.
Synapptic now includes an additional screen reader for reading out Android screens and apps. Synapptic Reader is automatically switched on when an Android screen or app starts. Synapptic Reader is a bit like Android’s TalkBack, but is easier to use.
Synapptic Reader gives you effortless access to thousands of useful apps that help make your life easier. These include apps like Be My Eyes for requesting video help through your phone or tablet, WhatsApp for free messaging, Google Pay for instant cashless payments in shops and Audible for talking books.
Synapptic Reader also places the familiar red Cancel and Go Back button in the top left of each App or Android message. This makes using Apps and Android features seamless and easy from Synapptic.
There are three ways to use Synapptic Reader and navigate around the various items on an app or Android screen:
You may purchase the smartphone with the standard Synapptic solution or with the Lite version.

“I was not a mobile phone user previously but now use it for calls, sending e-mails and texts. Also, I frequently use YouTube, Internet radio and talking books! Although I have a little sight, I feel I could use it without any sight.”John
“I have been using my Synapptic phone for a couple of months now and I love it. Synapptic software has opened up a whole new world to me. I am now even exploring taking photos with the camera. Just think – 6 months ago I could not even do text messages let alone think about attaching photos! I hope everyone else is getting as much pleasure from their Synapptic phone as I am.”Sandra
“If I did not have my Synapptic tablet, I would be lost without it. I can keep in touch with all my friends on email and Facebook. The speech recognition is the icing on the cake – wonderful!”Joseph
“Synapptic gives the user the very best opportunity to feel part of – and contribute to – the modern world, despite any level of sight loss.”Wanda, Leicestershire CareOnLine Training Officer
