GuideConnect will talk you through every step of the way - you won’t believe how easy it is to use!


Dolphin GuideConnect Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is the difference between GuideConnect & Guide?

A: GuideConnect is Guide’s new big brother; it does many of the things Guide used to do, but it’s even simpler and more intuitive to use.

Compatible with the full range of devices, use GuideConnect on a tablet or a TV box, portable laptop or everyday desktop. GuideConnect fits into

your lifestyle and how you use GuideConnect is flexible too. Choose the remote control for leisurely access from the comfort of your sofa. The

effortless touchscreen access is perfect for tablet users or laptops with touchscreens. And if you’re used to a keyboard and mouse they’re good

for your computer.

GuideConnect is packed with artificial intelligence, but unlike using an iPad with your sight loss, GuideConnect is always easy to see and easy to

learn. There are no complex gestures to remember and everything is in large print text with high contrast colors. Some of the less popular

features and some of the out-of-date technologies aren’t included in GuideConnect. Podcasts, news RSS and games weren’t very popular and

haven’t been made available in GuideConnect. At the moment Skype isn’t included in GuideConnect – but we do plan to include a phone and

video chat service at some time in the future.

Q: Which version of Windows does GuideConnect work on?

A: GuideConnect is compatible with Windows 10 only. Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft and many of the newer technologies that

GuideConnect uses are not supported by Windows 7.

We are currently in the process of testing GuideConnect with Windows 11 from versions Microsoft has made available to us. Please contact us

for further details.

Q: Do I need an internet connection?

A: Yes. Most tasks require internet connectivity, including accessing books, newspapers, radio, email, the web and product updates.

Q: What is the GuideConnect Actions menu?

A: Rather than making every task overly complicated, GuideConnect separates out the actions that you might want to take when you have

completed a task. If you compose an email, the actions menu lets you decide if you want to spell check it, send it, save it to drafts. The actions

menu presents you with a small list of options that are always relevant to the task you are completing. If you open a photo, the actions menu

will let you rotate your photo, scan it for text, print it and more.

Q: Can I dictate to GuideConnect?

A: Yes, GuideConnect now includes the option to dictate your emails, documents or perform a web search. At the moment, the voice input

feature is only available in the English and Italian editions of GuideConnect.

A: No. You will receive an email with a link to download your copy of GuideConnect.

Q: How do I get GuideConnect onto my TV?

A: To use GuideConnect on your TV you need to purchase a GuideConnect TV box. Once purchased, much like any other set top box, it plugs into

your TV via your HDMI port on the back.

Q: How does the Dolphin remote control connect to my device?

A: The Dolphin remote includes a USB receiver that plugs into any free USB port. Typically most laptop and desktop computers would be

suitable.
