We're Mantra Lingua, based in London, UK. We manufacture PENfriend and supply the RNIB (Royal National Institute for Blind People). We also publish books, labels, talking mats, posters that can be used with your PENfriend. This site catches all the countries and products where you can buy PENfriend and all its accessories. If you are from USA, we list shops for you and take you directly to the relevant page for PENfriend. Soon no matter where you are from, if PENfriend is sold in your country you can find where to buy it. (If any other authorised sites from any country wishes to be listed here, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
We believe the needs of VI all over the world are identical. They strive to increase independence and not having to rely on others for help as far as possible. Being publishers skilled in design and production, we have a huge range of products for your PENfriend. We are always innovating, and work closely with the Barnet Visualy Impaired Specialist Team. Most of the ideas shown in the Instruction and Uses Card come from VI's such as using the laundry labels to identify your plants, using stickers to record telephone conversations....
Our latest innovation is that PENfriend doubles up as your Talking Book Reader where PENfriend will remember the page where you last left off. The Team said that they wanted to extend the reach of PENfriend, which often stays inside the house. Now the Recordable Key FOB becomes an essential aid for shopping lists and key information.
RNIB are the distributors for UK, USA, Canada, Australia and Latvia. They also supply shops in Germany, France, Italy. However with the needs of VI's worldwide being similar, we are looking for distributors or specialist retailers. We have an exciting range of ancillary products for PENfriend and most of these can be badged with Distributors logos. For example, the Key FOBs.
Please contract email@example.com for further information.
Our new website is designed for you. Personalise it with your own unique requirements such as fonts, background colours,space between lines, contrast... And the main aim is to connect you and your ideas or advice or problems with each other and ourselves as we develop a global network of PENfriend users.
