Sprint Offering Free Accessibility App to the Visually Impaired
Sprint today announced the availability of an application developed by Code Factory that will allow the blind of visually impaired to use Android smartphones. The app is called Wireless Accessibility, and works by reading aloud the menu selections on the screen as the user traces their finger around the display. It supports a wide range of actions, such as making phone calls, sending messages, setting alarms, and making calendar appointments. The application normally costs $99, but Sprint is letting its customers use it for free as long as they subscribe to an unlimited data plan. The application requires Android 2.1 and up.
