Accessible newsagent, library and information delivered to your pocket.

Reading can make a world of difference to your enjoyment of life, which is why we’re excited to support the launch of a new version of In Your Pocket– a portable device for blind and partially sighted people, brought to you by RNIB, RealThing and O2.

Designed to make reading the latest newspapers, magazines and books easier, In Your Pocket now features a new Doro device, with larger buttons and a great speaker for quality sound, O2 connectivity, and RealSAM interactive speech software.  It also comes with a subscription to RNIB Newsagent, access to RNIB Talking Books, as well as podcasts, weather, and location information. An unbeatable reading package at just £22 composite VAT per month for a contract term of 24 months, or a one off payment of £528 composite VAT. Call the dedicated In Your Pocket help line to order on, 0333 772 7708.

With voice control, In Your Pocket is easy to use, fuss-free and great for listening on-the-go. You can get reading right away, without the need for a computer or downloads. You will always have access to the latest editions of newspapers, magazines and podcasts, wherever and whenever you want to listen.

With In Your Pocket, there’s no waiting for the postman. Just say “Read me The Guardian”, or “Find books about gardening”, or “Play me The Archers”, and In Your Pocket will oblige.  You can also access other useful information, for example “What is the weather inCambridge?”, or “What is the time in Paris?”.  Asking “Where am I?” tells you your current location, along with the nearest street intersection.

RNIB Newsagent provides daily, weekly and monthly newspapers and magazines, and the RNIB Library provides you with access to over 25,000 Talking Books. In Your Pocket lets you access all of these on demand, along with over 50,000 podcasts from BBC, RNIB, TED Talks and much more. New sources of media are being added regularly, so you will always have new content to listen to.

Most of our products and some publications in large print (16 point and above) can be sent by freepost under the 'Articles for the Blind' scheme.

However, the Articles for the Blind scheme offers no guarantees of delivery or insurance for valuable items.

Where a product incurs a delivery charge this is highlighted in the product details and will be added to your order at checkout.

When we send your products, the package will include a 'dispatch note' with details of the contents. It is really important to check this against the actual contents of the package and alert us immediately (within 7 working days) of receiving the order about any discrepancies.
