We are TouchSpot Audio, based in London, UK. We manufacture PENfriend and the other PENs for education. We also publish books and stickers, that can be used with your PENfriend.

As the above video shows, we are two companies tied together with a common technology, that is in the heart of a Pen: Mantra Lingua for children's books and TouchSpot Audio for Blind people. 
www.usa.mantralingua.com for buying books in the USA from our warehouse in Aurora, near Chicago, Illinois and 
www.uk.mantralingua,com for buying books from our UK warehouse in England. 

This site, www.touchspotaudio.com is for the USA and Canada, where you can buy PENfriend and its accessories from Aurora, Illinois.. 
Since PENfriend is a global product, www.penfriendlabeller.com is an information site where you cannot buy anything but is for international distributors to refer to in preparing their own websites. 

For warranty purposes, in order to keep all models of pens in one group - PENfriend, PENpal, ClassroomPEN - we ask distributors to refer to the warranty site at www.uk.mantralingua.com/warranty.

We hope that this clarifies how we are structured and if you need any points of clarification, please contact us below. 

We believe the needs of those living with visual impairment all over the world are identical. There is a common goal to increase independence, and not have to rely on others for help as far as possible. Being publishers skilled in design and production, we have a range of products for your PENfriend. We are always innovating, and work closely with the Barnet Visually 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, etc.

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 distributors for the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, and Latvia. They also supply shops in Germany, France, and Italy. However, with the needs of VI's worldwide being similar, they are looking for distributors or specialist retailers. We have an exciting range of ancillary products for PENfriend, and most of these, such as the Key Fobs, can be badged with Distributors logos.
Please contact info@touchspotaudio.com for further information. 

Our new website is designed for you. Personalise it with your own unique requirements such as fonts, background colors, space between lines, contrast, etc. The main aim is to connect you and your ideas, advice, or problems, with other people of the world-wide VI community and ourselves, as we develop a global network of PENfriend users.
