Verizon Wireless Launches Mobile Accessibility App Suite for Visually Impaired Customers

Verizon Wireless announced the introduction of a suite of 10 accessibility apps, from speech recognition to text-to-speech technology, for Verizon Wireless Android smartphones, to help customers who are visually impaired.

The Mobile Accessibility suite features intuitive touch screen navigation, speech recognition, and voice synthesis powered by Nuance's Vocalizer text-to-speech technology, as well as Braille output. Customers get automatic access to all features once the app is downloaded, and do not have to launch each app individually from within the suite.

There is no charge to download the app, but a Verizon Wireless data plan is required and usage may count towards a customer's data allowance.
