There is no denying that life can be incredibly busy and being able to organise your schedule is often considered essential. Even when you’re ‘relaxing’ at home, you can guarantee that you’re trying to juggle multiple things at once. For this reason, many people rely on reminders and alarms to keep them on track, whether this is a paper diary, a digital alarm, a notification on your phone or even a wind-up egg timer, they make life much easier.
If you are blind or you have a visual impairment then, it goes without saying, that whilst these reminders and alarms are still incredibly beneficial, you may find that devices others use aren’t always the best way for you to stay organised. For this reason, a voice-activated device like In Your Pocket can make all the difference and below we have looked into how this talking phone for the blind and visually impaired can benefit you.
What is In Your Pocket?
In short, In Your Pocket is a simple, voice-operated smart device that is specifically designed for people living with sight loss. Not only is it a smartphone, but it is also a media player and a helpful living assistant all in one. You can do so much on this device and thanks to the fact that it is specifically designed for the blind and visually impaired, you can guarantee that it has overcome the majority of the issues that people experience with standard smart devices.
How In Your Pocket can help you to stay organised
Ask the device to set a reminder for you
Usually, when needing a reminder or an alarm, people will write something in a diary or on a smartphone calendar but, this isn’t convenient for someone who is blind or visually impaired. Thankfully, In Your Pocket makes this simple task much easier.
Due to the fact that this talking phone for the blind and visually impaired is also voice-activated, you simply just need to ask it to set the reminder for you. Let the device know what you want to be reminded and it will then ensure you’re notified when required.
Always be reminded what the alarm is for
The majority of alarms simply make a noise to remind you of something. Whether this is an oven alarm for your dinner or a phone alarm for a meeting, they all sound the same. This is all well and good if you can remember what the alarm is for but, it goes without saying that it is incredibly easy to forget, especially if you have numerous alarms for different reasons.
The In Your Pocket device will always tell you what your reminder is for, so even if you have lots of alarms set for the same day, you don’t need to worry about remembering which alarm is for which reminder.
It is a talking world clock too
As you may have already guessed/assumed, this talking phone for the blind and visually impaired is also an easy to use talking world clock too. So, if you know you need to do something at a certain time, you won’t have a problem making sure that you’re not late.
Simply ask the device what the time is and it will immediately tell you. This works for places all over the world too, whether you want to call a friend in Paris or New York, you can easily ensure you do so at a convenient time.
Setting alarms and reminders
It is clear to see that In Your Pocket really can make life much easier. This smart device can help you to ensure that you never forget day-to-day activities, like meeting a friend or turning the oven off again. Of course, the fact that you won’t just be reminded with an alarm but you will also be told what the reminder was for can help to prevent frustration too. You’ll never need to use any other alarm/reminder device when you have In Your Pocket.

When using In Your Pocket, you don’t have the frustrations associated with touchscreen phones. Whilst almost everything is voice-controlled, you still have 3 buttons on the device too. You can easily navigate around In Your Pocket without the issues you get with a touchscreen only device.
Size and shape
Nowadays, modern smartphones are getting bigger and bigger, they are no longer a device that you can slip into your pocket and often, they can be quite difficult to hold comfortably in one hand too. This may be a selling point for some, but for others, it is very off-putting.
As a mobile phone for the blind and the visually impaired, In Your Pocket is designed to easily be held in one hand. So, if you have a guide dog or use a white cane then you can still use the device at the same time. It is also small enough to put in any pocket with ease.
Choosing In Your Pocket over other smartphones

You will never have to worry about any of the typical issues associated with regular smartphones and you won’t need to resort to a classic phone with large buttons either. You can feel confident that this smart device will make life much easier in general, and small things like calling or texting someone incredibly simple again.
Whilst we have focused on why In Your Pocket is a good mobile phone for the blind or visually impaired, it is actually much more than just a phone.
