Information, Advice and Tech for Assessors
Dolphin provides information, advice and technology to assessors. We can help you and your team make informed decisions on assistive technology for clients who are blind or partially sighted.

SuperNova Enables Working From Home
SuperNova Enterprise is the only assistive technology which is certified as Citrix Ready and SAP certified. This means it can be used on remote desktops, if your client's workplace allows staff to work from home.

SuperNova for Students funded by DSA
If you assess the needs of students in further and higher education - or recommend assistive technology for students funded by the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) - you can feel confident recommending SuperNova to students.
SuperNova is robust software that's easy to learn. This technology is simple to use and suitable for all age groups. It adapts to changing needs and the transition from school to university and on to the workplace.
Exclusive Offer for DSA Students
Students funded by a Disabled Student's Allowance (DSA) who purchase SuperNova with a twelve-month Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA) will receive the SMA free in their second and third year of study.
This exclusive DSA offer is designed so students who are blind or partially sighted have peace of mind that their SuperNova will keep pace with Windows 11 as it evolves, and if their sight changes during their studies.
To ensure DSA-funded students receive their free upgrade: quote 'DSA' and their full name on all orders, quote requests and price enquiries.
