RealSAM, is a mobile device with an interactive spoken interface that allows users to search and navigate a wide range of media, and have articles read to them. It provides unparalleled access to content – just click the (single) button and speak!

 

Up-to-date news and information and other online content can be very difficult to access for people with a print disability, and RealSAM successfully breaks down these barriers. RealSAM is also truly portable and can be used on the go, or while doing other tasks.
