eBook: 24 of the best apps for people with a visual impairment

If you have a visual impairment a smart phone has the potential to open up your world. With the right apps it can empower an individual with sight loss to get more out of life, to be more independent and to go beyond expectations.

That’s what we’re all about at Henshaws, so we’ve pulled together a list of 24 of our favourite apps (most are free, some paid for) and organised them in to seven categories to help you navigate what you’re looking for:

Identification, Reading, Social Networking, Navigation, Entertainment, Shopping and Work.

Download, have a play and let us know how you get on.

We’ll be updating this e-book in the future, so if you’re using an app that’s not featured and think it’s worth shouting about please email info@henshaws.org.uk or call 0161 872 1234.
