Hands-Free Computing was established in 1997 with the mission of helping those in the workplace reach their full potential - through assistive technology, ergonomic adaptations, training and coaching.
Our team of trainers, assessors and workplace strategy coaches are nationwide. They will work with you and your recommended assistive technology solutions to get you up and running as quickly as possible.
Over the past 15 years Hands-Free Computing has grown to become the UK’s largest independent supplier of speech recognition software, as well as a leading provider of assistive solutions. These innovative products make working life easier for so many people and in thousands of cases they also enable employees to remain in their jobs and lead a productive working life.
We help those not only with physical disabilities, but also people with hidden disabilities such as dyslexia and those with impaired vision and hearing. This has led to us working alongside Access to Work/Job Centre Plus in many parts of the UK.
As Hands-Free Computing are at the forefront of the speech recognition revolution we have a broad client base. We work with companies and organisations, both large and small as well as government bodies such as councils, police and fire services, Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), Her Majesty's Prison Service (HMPS), Lloyds TSB, Logica, and corporations such as the BBC.
Hands-Free is also the leading supplier of speech recognition to the NHS. Consultants, GPs and Practice Managers use the technology to increase the accuracy and decrease the turnaround time of documents.
Managing Director, Lawrence Howard said: "Everyday our staff are helping to change lives for the better. Our ethos at Hands-Free is to always go that extra mile to help our clients - that's what has helped us build our reputation and stand head and shoulders above others in the same field."
