The impact of Assistive Technology support:
Assistive technology can help people with sight loss to simplify daily tasks. From navigation and product identification apps to interacting with others and shopping safely online. Increased use of technology can help to reduce social isolation and loneliness by offering much needed interaction, and restore confidence and independence by teaching techniques for safely accessing essential goods, services and exercise both outside of their home environment and online.
