Download Free, Accessible Apps From the American Foundation for the Blind
For the millions of Americans with vision loss looking for a simple, convenient way to take notes at work, at school, or at home, as well as keep up with the latest technology news, the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) is pleased to offer four free, accessible apps.
Apps from the American Foundation for the Blind
AccessNote is a specialized notetaker for the iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. AccessNote allows users to combine efficient note taking with the countless other features and functions of the iOS devices. Thanks to generous support from funders, AFB is making AccessNote (formerly $19.99 in the Apple App Store) available free of charge:
Download the AccessNote™ App on the Apple App Store
Download the AccessNote App on the Google Play Store
This free, accessible app allows doctors, and patients who are blind or losing vision, to search for local services, save and e-mail lists, and explore AFB's web resources on living with vision loss. Download the free VisionConnect app from iTunes or download the new Android version of VisionConnect from the Google Play store.
Also help share the news about this great, free resource: order outreach materials for a clinic or medical office—each packet includes 10 mock prescription pads and 10 rack cards.
"Apple products have earned high points from us for their out-of-the-box accessibility for users who are blind or visually impaired," said Carl R. Augusto, AFB president and CEO.
All of AFB's apps are available from the App Store℠.
