Jane – Camborne
Jane, from Camborne, has a number of eye conditions which had begun to affect her confidence and wellbeing. She received a tablet with built in accessible software to help her with everyday tasks.
“The award was given to me at a time where my eyesight had deteriorated to the point that I was finding everyday life difficult. With the tablet I can stay in contact with my family and friends, send emails, listen to news feeds and radio stations, and access other accessible features too. I feel very lucky to have had this opportunity to help me with gain more independence, adaptability and be more in tune with the technology side of life.
“I have used several iSightCornwall services over the years. The service they provide is very important for visually impaired people especially if you have eye sight conditions which are very complex and cause isolation. I have a number of eye conditions which cause a lot of mixed emotions so life can be very confusing at times but life is more liveable with help to overcome barriers.”
