Nuance Introduces the Nuance Accessibility Suite
BURLINGTON, Mass. and GHENT, Belgium - Nuance Communications, Inc. released the Nuance Accessibility Suite, a mobile accessibility solution designed to help handset users take full advantage of mobile data with direct access to on-screen content and device functionality.
Estimates show that more than 150 million people worldwide have some form of visual impairment. This makes it difficult for them to use certain devices - especially mobile phones - that have small displays and smaller font sizes. Through verbal feedback, visual enhancement, or Braille keyboard support the Nuance Accessibility Suite enhances the way in which information is displayed, enabling these individuals to access the content found within mobile devices. The Accessibility Suite comprises Nuance TALKS, a screen reader for the blind or severely visually impaired that converts mobile phone text into speech, and Nuance ZOOMS, a new application for users with mild to severe vision problems that magnifies the contents of mobile phone displays from 1.5 times up to 16 times.
In addition, the Nuance Accessibility Suite software is available in over 20 languages.
