This week the Accessible World international Tek Talk online training event
is proud to present a demonstration of the many features of Mobilespeak
Pocket, the first screenreader released for persons who are blind that runs
on an endless number of windows Mobile PDAs and cellular phones. Drawing
upon his extensive background in product evaluation, training, and deploying
adaptive technologies for consumers in a variety of educational and
vocational settings, Larry Lewis will take the audience on a tour of his
PDA while demonstrating how he uses this software to access an otherwise
inaccessible device to perform a variety of tasks. Finally, he will
conclude by illustrating how Mobilespeak Pocket offers the user refreshable
Braille access if he elects to use his BrailleNote as a Braille input/output
device in conjunction with his PDA. He'll also be debuting HumanWare's
Brailleconnect Series of refreshable Braille displays as an alternative for
users in the market for an affordable, portable line of Braille displays
that can interact with mainstream PDAs.
