Nuance's S60 5th Ed. Software TALKS to the Visually Impaired
Today Nuance Communications introduced TALKS 5.0, new software for S60 5th Edition handsets that will read displayed text to the blind or visually impaired. The software can interact with many of S60 5th Edition's features, including the contact directory, caller ID, text messaging, and the Web browser. The software features an exploration mode that lets users slide their finger across the screen to hear menus, applications, widgets, and text. It also works with software keyboards to permit text entry. The software is licensed to the user's SIM card, allowing them to use many different touch phones without the need to re-purchase or license the software. It is available starting today in 20 different languages.
