Can I get help to use my computer?


Choosing and using a computer, laptop or tablet can be a confusing process. Our Beginner's guide to computers, laptops and tablets aims to demystify some of the jargon and help you make an informed choice. The guide looks at all aspects of buying and using computers and includes useful links to further resources.

RNIB's Technology Support Squad, our free national service, can help you set up and use your technology, including JAWS. We have over 800 volunteers right across the UK who can give you advice over the phone or visit you at home. Call 0303 123 9999  or email:
