In collaboration with RNIB and & O2 Telefonica, RealSAM LTD have rolled out In Your Pocket in the UK, and with only a few voice commands you can make calls, listen to books or get the newspaper read to you.
And In Your Pocket is about to get even better for blind and low-vision users. On December 10th 2018, RealSAM is launching their Be My Eyes integration, making it possible for In Your Pocket users to make a Be My Eyes call through voice commands. With its simple voice controlled navigation, In Your Pocket is the perfect solution if you don’t find yourself to be too tech-savvy. Just push the button and say "Be My Eyes" - It can't get any simpler.
