Nuance TALKS is voice output software for cell phones and PDAs (personal digital assistants), designed for use by individuals who are blind or have low vision. The software runs on mobile phones from Nokia and other manufacturers that use the Symbian operating system, and provides speech output for cell phone settings, contact directories, caller ID, text messages, help files, the Nokia Web browser, and other functions. It also supports external braille input/output devices (not included) and many third-party applications, such as IM+ (Instant Messenger), the Wayfinder GPS application, and the SolvoEd dictionary.
Nuance ZOOMS is a cell phone display magnifier program designed for use by individuals with low vision. This program magnifies the displays of Symbian Series 60 handsets. It can magnify the full screen area from 1.5 up to 4 times. In Distributed Views mode, the screen is divided into several areas to display various elements simultaneously, magnified to double their original size. As the user scrolls through a menu or list, the program magnifies each item along with some of the surrounding area. Key commands allow the user to magnify specific elements such as the window title, soft keys, or battery level indicator. When the magnifier is on an object that does not fit the screen in its entirety, after a brief delay the program begins to scroll automatically through the text so the user can view the complete contents. The display can be converted into black and white, grayscale, or color inverted. Auto-Zoom mode resizes text as defined by the user, independent of the text's original size. This magnifier program can operate with the Nuance TALKS screen reader, with shared key commands and magnification focus synchronized with reading of items on the screen.
Touch Memo is a voice output labeling system designed for use by individuals who are blind or have low vision. The system includes labels that can be attached to CD's, clothing, documents, grocery items, or medicine bottles. To create a recorded label, the user presses the system's electronic pen to the label, then records a descriptive voice tag. The next time the user presses the pen to that label, the pen will read aloud the voice tag associated with the label. The pen has 2 gigabytes (GB) of internal flash memory, and recorded labels can be backed up on a computer. The system comes with 120 tactile adhesive labels, 40 non-tactile adhesive labels, 60 washable re-recordable labels, and 24 reusable plastic tags. OPTIONS: Extra labels are available. POWER: Uses rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
