TALKS&ZOOMS 4.0 Now Available From Nuance Mobile
Nuance Communications announced the availability of TALKS&ZOOMS 4.0, Nuance Mobile’s assistive software that converts displayed text on a handset into highly intelligible speech and magnified content for blind or visually impaired mobile consumers.
The latest version of TALKS&ZOOMS features a new text-to-speech (TTS) audio system for Series 60 third-edition phones that enables users to look up or enter contacts, find notes, access and update calendar appointments, manage multiple calls, mute and hold calls, and more—all while the phone is already being used for a call.
With Nuance’s TALKS&ZOOMS, blind and visually impaired users are able to take advantage of the many features found on today’s popular mobile phones, including contact directories, caller ID, text messaging, help files, access to Web browsers, and other screen content. And TALKS&ZOOMS 4.0 enables consumers to choose the TTS software they want to use to power all updated features, including Nuance’s trusted Vocalizer Mobile and ETI-Eloquence.
Additionally, TALKS&ZOOMS 4.0 features SIM-based licensing, the DAISY2Go Audio Book Player, and support for Quickword.
