Whole-In-One

What is Whole-In-One?
Whole-In-One is a new application that includes all the essential computer needs, BUT is designed to be used by anyone who has not used a computer before or finds using a computer complicated.

All the essential computer needs such as email, web browser, a photo album, contact details, word processor, scanner etc are all included in one place.

Other features include a simple video chat facility to help those who find themselves lonely and isolated as well as a forum to chat to other users.

New features are being added all the time and we try to add any suggestions from users.

It is completely free to try out so if you have nothing to lose.
This means that new computer users do not have to learn how to run different programs, although Whole-In-One does includes lessons in using a computer.

Everything today is on-line and everyone is expected to use a computer to shop, access deals or even to renew essential documents such as driving licences, TV licences, Blue Badge Parking etc.

However there is a very large amount of the population, not just in the UK, but worldwide (which is why Whole-In-One will be available in 58 different languages! - see the list below) who do not have basic computer skills or find them complex to use. There is a new term that has been applied to this population which is The Digitally Excluded

We would love to work with charities worldwide who help the digitally excluded, so if this is you, or you know of a charity for which Whole-in-One would be of interest, then please drop us a line here. Also, if you know someone who would benefit from trying Whole-in-One for free, then we can send you a copy when it is released.
If you would like a beta copy, then please request one here.
This is a quote from Keith, Aged 85, who inspired the concept of Whole-In-One:-
"Whole-In-One has taught me to be confident in using a computer which I had never done before.

So well laid out and made to be simplified, from sending and reading emails, automatic filing of my photographs to browsing the web plus much, much more. I can now buy products on-line from eBay and Amazon and book holidays which I could not do before.

New features are being added all the time and recently a news feed was added giving me up to date news information.

I have gone from inability to even switch on a computer and use a mouse to a confident user in no time.

It is a great bonus to us oldies and I would recommend it to anyone who feels left out of today's technical world."

Frequently Asked Questions

The whole purpose of Whole-in-One is to enable those people who have never used a computer before can do so, but at a level that they are comfortable with. Things like the 'Metaverse' and the 'Cloud' are phrases which are becoming common place but are for advanced users and are not in Whole-in-One. All we are interested in is to help everyone to get on the first steps of using a computer and be able to become digitally active.

So all the features are here in one place. You will not need to load up different programs to do different things and then learn how to use each one, because all the programs are here.

We have also included lessons on how to use a computer. These include both Help, Videos and Practice areas for:

  • Using the mouse.
  • Using the keyboard.
  • What are the 'Ctrl', 'Fn', 'Alt' keys on the keyboard for.
  • What Cut, Copy and Paste means.

etc. etc.


We also understand that not everyone is happy with typing and so we have included speech recognition so that rather that typing text, you can simply talk to the computer and it will type it for you.


And if your eyesight is not great, it will also read any text for you!
