Mobile Phones and Related Software
1. Off-the-shelf phones with some limited speech output built in.
2. Phones which use the Symbian or Windows Mobile operating systems and are compatible with third-party screen reader and screen magnifier software products. These products provide full access to nearly all the phone's functions, and they are usually expensive, $100 to $300 plus the cost of the software--around $300. The software
is compatible with several Symbian and Windows Mobile Smartphones and Pocket PC phones.
Many people will be satisfied with the off-the-shelf phones which provide some limited speech access to things like caller ID and status information, such as battery and signal strength.
People who want access to most features and functions on the phone, such as text messaging, e-mail, web browsing and video cameras, will want the Symbian or Windows Mobile phones and third-party software. AT&T has the best deal for screen reader and screen magnifier software, offering Code Factory's Mobile Speak and Mobile Magnifier for $89 on selected Symbian and Windows Mobile Smartphones. AT&T's National Center for Customers with Disabilities can be reached at
