RealSAM Pocket is a unique voice-controlled device that's simple and easy to use. Designed especially for people who are blind or living with some sight loss, it combines a customised smartphone with a media player and personal assistance tools.

If you’re a fan of audiobooks, then RealSAM Pocket could be perfect for you! Pocket offers more than 100,000 books, including access to the RNIB Library and four other audio book libraries, with no borrowing limits or additional costs. You can search for, then stream, audio books just by using your voice.

You can also use RealSAM Pocket to access the RNIB Newsagent Services, again at no additional cost, bringing more than 275 talking newspapers and magazines to you each day.

RealSAM Bundles include the customised smartphone and either a 3GB or 10GB data plan to access RNIB Library, RNIB Newsagent and other internet-based services when you’re away from wi-fi.

The 3GB plan provides enough data to stream Talking Books for about 119 hours per month (averaging four hours per day). The 10GB plan provides enough data to stream Talking Books for about 120 hours per month (averaging four hours per day).
