RealSAM Pocket

A revolutionary voice operated smartphone for people who are blind or visually impaired

RealSAM Pocket takes away the stress of figuring out complicated phone interfaces when you can’t see or can’t see well enough what’s on the screen. It enables you to communicate with your dear ones by phone or text, reduces isolation by allowing you to stream content and supports your independence with handy assistance tools… all this by just using your voice. No need to learn complicated touch screens or struggle with reading small buttons; just tap the screen and talk. It’s that simple!

As the leader of the most comprehensive vocational rehabilitation center in the world, we are often asked for a piece of technology for seniors and those who have disabilities that limit a person’s ability to remember complex commands and gestures. We have not previously found a solution that would fit that order, until now. The RealSAM Pocket is truly a simple talking solution for those suffering with vision loss. Whether you are totally blind or dealing with low vision, the RealSAM will allow you to have access to the applications needed to remain or regain your highest levels of independence.

Frequently Asked Questions

We are regularly asked a lot of the same questions, we have listed these below to help with any queries you have.

RealSAM Pocket is a voice controlled smart device that is designed to be simple to use and of enormous value to people living with low vision and blindness. We install our software on a Samsung mobile phone, and it completely takes over the phone. More than just a phone for the blind, you can use your voice to make phones calls, search for and stream audio books, read today’s newspapers, get navigation or sight assistance and much, much more.

RealSAM Pocket is actually a collection of smart technologies. It is:

The handset that controls basic functions such as speech to text conversion, media playing and making calls. It runs on an Android phone, but the user can’t access Android directly.

A network connection via Wifi or a mobile service provider.

An Artificial Intelligence engine on the internet that figures out what users want and responds.

A variety of sources of content on the internet such as the RNIB Audio library.

A web portal that allows users, family, friends and care takers to update some parts of the device.

The Pocket experience would be hobbled in a variety of ways which would frustrate users. Such as having to login regularly.  We would also have to utilize other software attempting to listen in on your conversations with the RealSAM Pocket.

We probably could, but it wouldn’t be viable for you as it generally takes us a minimum of two to four weeks work to get Pocket working seamlessly on a new phone.  It would be expensive!

All users get all the updates, so no one ever misses out on features. Also we only change handsets every couple of years because we can’t purchase the old handset anymore. So there’s no need to wait when you can start using it right away.
