NCBI is here to transform the lives of children and adults who are blind or vision impaired throughout Ireland, ensuring they have access to the same opportunities, rights, and choices as anyone else in society.

Welcome to myNCBI Smart Hub

myNCBI Smart Hub Skill on Alexa and Google Home, the first innovative voice-based platform of its scale within the charity sector brings NCBI services and content into the homes of people with sight loss through an affordable smart speaker.

This skill allows you to tap into the wealth of information on services and supports and the many resources NCBI offers. You can request “Alexa, tell me about the symptoms of Nystagmus” or “Alexa, play a podcast”. You can even request a call back from NCBI.

We are giving away ECHO DOT (4th Gen) with Alexa devices to service users and their families. Please email with your name and delivery address.
