Hello from all the team at TripleTapTech. We are wishing everyone an Fantastic May. The team at TripleTapTech are still creating new and exciting services to help the Visually Impaired community during these difficult times. It is very important to remember that we are here for you and if you need some advice or someone to help fix any issues you might be having with your device or even just to talk to, we are just at the end of the phone. Unfortunately, due to the continuing Covid 19 Lockdown Restrictions we are still unable to provide face to face services such as one to one training and tech try outs from our office. This is something that we as a team a greatly missing. However, we are continuing to provide our remote services through phone calls and digital media.
