Mobile Speak – Talking Mobile Phone Software

Nokia phone for visual impaired personsSo far, the blind faced tremendous challenges daily in accessing information while on the move or for that matter in communicating with the world around them. They had to depend on their sighted colleagues, friends or relatives or the people on the road to help them with locating places, making a phone call or informing their parents or loved ones that they are safe and would be home soon.

With the introduction of the mobile phone, many blind persons have started using them since the benefit of mobile technology is overwhelming but since these cell phones were not designed for use by the blind, they found it very difficult to send SMS messages or use the full functionalities in the mobile phone like the sighted.
