Povidi an Esperanto mash up meaning "At the Speed of Seeing"

Povidi NZ Ltd is a small start-up technology company based in Christchurch, New Zealand dedicated to technology for the blind and visually impaired.
Founded by Darryl Sherwood in order to exploit the SoundPost Orientation System after leaving Humanware in 2007, the company is now at a point where the first major development is ready for public attention.

The founder - Darryl Sherwood, and International Sales Director - Larry L. Lewis Jr. have extensive experience in the blindness industry, including the development of major products for the blind, sales and marketing within this arena and supporting all customers in the purchasing channel from the first day of contact and throughout the life of the product.

Povidi partners with world-class companies too, both in New Zealand and around the world to help them with their developments, sales and distribution. We are always on the look out for the right people and companies that can work with us to take the SoundPost Orientation System to the buildings of the world.
