--- DISCONTINUED. (Verified 11/2002) RETAINED IN DATABASE FOR REFERENCE. --- The IBM Screen Reader/2 is a voice output program capable of converting screen information to speech to make IBM's Graphical User Interface (GUI) available to persons who are blind or who have visual disabilities. Screen Reader/2 is designed to run with OS/2 Version 2 in all sessions. The Autospeak function monitors the screen and provides voice output of all OS/2 screen information, including messages. A dedicated 18-key keypad controls Screen Reader/2 functions to enhance productivity by reserving the keyboard for application functions. Screen Reader/2 can be controlled from the keyboard as an alternative. Powerful Reading functions allow the user to read complete screens, paragraphs, sentences, words, or letters, reading only the information the user needs. Customized profiles are provided for the most popular programs. By using the Profile Access language, a profile can be modified or created. Build in Host/LAN (Local Area Network) support enables connectivity. The windowing capability provides easy access to many display formats featured by today's popular applications. Screen Reader/2 recognizes and verbalizes objects (icons) to keep the user informed of screen activity and cursor movement at all times. Screen Reader/2 also emulates mouse functions like point and click. The system includes 3.5 inch program diskettes (including on-line documentation), installation instructions (audio cassette, print, and Braille), and OS/2 Screen Representations (raised images). Peripherals include the IBM Screen Reader Keypad ($100), the IBM Keypad Cable ($23) and the Screen Reader Adapter Card ($120). SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: The system requires an OS/2 2.0 capable system with 2 MB available disk space, any supported text-to-speech synthesizer, one serial port, and the Screen Reader Adapter Card, and one expansion slot (for non-IBM systems). The Screen Reader Keypad plugs into the mouse port, so a serial mouse must be used, if desired. A 386SXZ processor or greater, 4 MB memory, and a 60 MB hard file are also required. COMPATIBILITY: For use on IBM PS/2 computers. DIMENSIONS: 5.9 x 7.5 inches.
