Synapptic announces the release of their new TV Box, which was officially launched at the Sight Village Southeast exhibition, at Kensington Town Hall in London, on 6th November 2018. The new Synapptic TV Box is set to be the accessible home entertainment product for people with sight loss. Like all of our Synapptic products, navigation is easy, via our simple menu system, which is both intuitive and can be used by anyone, even if you’re new to technology.

The launch of the new Synapptic TV Box had an enthusiastic welcome at the launch, from both customers and organizations alike. We gave many demonstrations to visitors who, in turn, wasted no time in trying it out for themselves, with little or no instruction from our demonstrators! As Mary McMahon, Managing Director of Synapptic explained, ‘The TV Box is just the latest in a line of Synapptic products that enable anyone with sight loss to retain their independence at home, while still remaining connected to friends and family, whether through emails, texts, calls or even social media.’
She continued, ‘For many people with sight loss, operating smart TVs for Internet access and catchup services can be a challenge in itself. That’s why all our design starts and ends with the user’s experience, so we can make that experience as seamless and intuitive as we can.’
The Synapptic TV Box simply plugs into your normal TV, enabling you to access a world of entertainment, information and handy tools through your TV screen. You can use it to: search TV and radio listings with ease; watch live Freeview TV or catch up with BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub and All 4, etc; listen to music streaming services, MP3s, audio books, podcasts, Talking Newspapers and news feeds; do your online shopping or banking or get simple access to the internet; keep in touch with family and friends through emails, Skype video calls and social media; and even get organized with the in-built Calendar, Address Book, Alarm Clock and Weather options. It also comes with in-built speech, magnification and voice control, so you can customise it to suit you.
The Synapptic TV Box is now available for the retail price of £649. For more information, or to place an order, please visit our online shop at www.synapptic.com, contact us on 0191 909 7 909 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
