Innovation and advances in technology offer many opportunities to blind and partially sighted people, but it can be difficult for individuals and their professional advisors to find out what devices and products are available (and affordable) and decide which will work best for them.

The resources in these pages explain what features are centrally important to someone with sight loss (e.g. tactile and audio options). They also look at different types of products in terms of their accessibility and highlight the need for greater awareness and application of inclusive design.
