Shadow Minister for Disabled People Visits Dolphin
Kate Green MP, Shadow Minister for Disabled People, visited Dolphin’s HQ in Worcester on Monday and liked Dolphin Guide more than the announcements you get on the train.
“We are thrilled Kate recognises Dolphin as a world leader in the development of assistive technology, transforming the lives of blind and partially sighted people, not just in the UK, but around the world.” Said Hazel Shaw, Dolphin Director of Marketing.
During the visit, the MP for Stretford and Urmston had the chance to try SuperNova, the world’s only fully combined screen reader and screen magnifier that supports the widest range of blind and partially sighted people.
“It’s a lot clearer than the announcements you get on the train” Kate said while trying Dolphin Guide, a simple menu system that makes computers easy to use for even the complete beginner.
Kate met staff from Dolphin’s marketing, sales and support teams, many of whom are themselves blind or partially sighted, and witnessed first-hand how software designed, developed, tested and supported in the UK is enabling digital inclusion in the workplace, classroom and at home.
As well as visiting Dolphin, while in Worcester Kate dropped in at New College for students who are blind or partially sighted aged 11-19, and Sight Concern a local charity dedicated to supporting blind and partially sighted people to lead independent and fulfilling lives across Worcestershire.
