Today is National Writing Day
27th June in the UK is National Writing Day; an annual celebration of writing designed to inspire people across the UK to get writing. The message is simple: everyone has a story to tell, and sharing it can be a source of pleasure and power.
Of course if you have a visual impairment, writing may be more difficult. You may struggle to use a conventional keyboard, or to view the computer screen to see what you're typing or review what you've already written.
With Dolphin software and hardware, we make it easier for you to tell your story.
Dolphin Guide software is designed for people with less computer experience, who don't want to use the full suite of Windows applications. Anthony has limited mobility so Guide is a much easier form of technology for him to use when it comes to his writing. He's written children's stories about Wizzy the electric wheelchair using Dolphin Guide, and is currently working on another one.
Joanne had been using computers for many years when she lost her sight as a result of diabetes. With SuperNova she was able to continue using a computer with her choice of magnification level and speech. When she decided to write her book, Confessions of a Guide Dog, to raise money for Guide Dogs UK, she used Microsoft Word through SuperNova not only to write the book, but also to write her pitching letters to publishers.
The Dolphin keyboard has large print high contrast keys to make typing easier. It also has pre-programmed hotkeys which are compatible with our software, to make using common Guide and SuperNova functions even easier.
So, on National Writing Day, don't let sight loss stop you writing your story! Try SuperNova or Guide FREE for 30 days with our no commitment trial - download via our product pages or call us on 01905 754577 for more information.
