Verizon Wireless today announced the Mobile Accessibility Suite, a collection of applications and services that will allow visually impaired customers to use their Android smartphones more effectively. The suite bundles together 10 separate apps that make it easier for the visually impaired to navigate their touch screen device, and they offer features such as speech recognition, text-to-speech, and Braille output. The suite allows users to quickly make phone calls; manage contacts; compose/read text messages; set alarms; browse the web; create and edit calendar appointments; compose, read, and send emails; access location, time, and weather information; and manage device settings. The suite is free to download and use, but requires devices running Android 2.2 and up with a data plan.
