Who is Dolphin?
It is our vision to deliver independence to people with vision and print impairments worldwide. With over 160 million visually impaired people and 600 million dyslexic or learning disabled people, that's no small challenge but we're determined to make a difference and have been working hard on that goal since Dolphin started.
Noel Duffy, Managing Director, Dolphin Computer Access.
Independence is a different experience for every person, but for some of our customers it means securing their first job in industry, for others it's being able to read their post again having lost their sight in later life. Delivering those unique moments is exactly what drives us to keep creating world class products that are innovative, easy-to-use and intuitive.
Dolphin's roots are in assistive technology and we are proud to have developed one of the first commercial screen readers in 1986. When it comes to assistive technology, we know that one size does not fit all, so we focus on creating the perfect software for each of our users. This includes making inaccessible IT accessible for people in employment, thanks to SuperNova with Dolphin's Scripting for bespoke applications, as well as empowering visually impaired seniors to email, Skype or write letters to family using Dolphin Guide.
Since those early days we have lead the market with innovations like SuperNova, the only combined magnification, speech and Braille software. We were also the first company to offer any assistive technology on a USB thumb drive when we developed and launched the Dolphin Pen in 2006. These days our AltFormat team are also leading the way in making text accessible for all people with a visual or print impairment with EasyConverter, and providing access to talking books with EasyReader.
Since our humble beginnings in one small Worcester office more than 20 years ago, the continued support of our customers has taken Dolphin from strength to strength. Today our 70 plus team support our international community of users from our offices in New Jersey US, Falköping Sweden, Hakadal Norway and our headquarters in Worcester, UK.
Dolphin is a founder member of BATA - raising awareness and lobbying for the rights and interests of those needing assistive technology.
Dolphin has been named 'one to watch' in the Best Companies to Work for guide 2011, this guide is based on employee feedback.
