We chatted to Steven Scott from RNIB Connect Radio this week to mark the launch of RealSAM In Your Pocket on the Samsung Galaxy XCover4s handset. Steven spoke to Roger Wilson-Hinds, a loyal customer of In Your Pocket, about how he connects his hearing aids and other Bluetooth enabled technology to make every day life easier.
In Your Pocket is the UK’s first fully voice-activated smart phone, media player and personal assistant for people with sight loss (www.inyourpocket.net/). Developed with input from the blind community, RealSAM In Your Pocket features a simple accessible voice interface, where users can ask ‘SAM’ for help in everyday life. This includes turning on its inbuilt video magnifier when reading labels while shopping, or its custom-built navigation software that allows users to bookmark landmarks when travelling alone and be guided back with direction and distance. SAM also connects directly to Be My Eyes through a live video call.
New features on the XCover4s include an IP68 rating making it waterproof, with an extended battery life and faster processor. Prices start at £25.99 a month as part of a two-year contract, offering unlimited access to RealSAM In Your Pocket’s entertainment library, UK calls and texts and a choice of data plan with O2. All customers are offered 121 telephone support with setting up their handset and have access to a UK based helpline staffed by both a sighted and visually impaired team.
