Harpo Sp. z o.o began its operations on July 18, 1985. Three years later we already had our first contribution to the Polish blind community. We localized Apollo, a speech synthesizer by Dolphin. That was only the beginning of a successful journey to the world of assistive technology.

Now Harpo is a company with a global reach. Since 2010, the year we celebrated our 25th anniversary, our products have been delivered to all corners of the world. Thanks to the network of our partners, people with visual impairments around the globe have an opportunity to improve their lives with a range of solutions developed and manufactured by Harpo.
