Noel Duffy, CEO of Dolphin, said “we are delighted to launch GuideConnect, our latest solution to empower people with a visual impairment. Losing your sight can be a devastating, isolating process. Technology is a great tool to increase independence, but can seem intimidating. Our simple talking technology enables blind and partially sighted people to do everyday tasks easily, exactly as a person with full sight would”.
