Verizon Wireless Introduces Mobile Accessibility App For Customers Who Are Visually Impaired - Intuitive User Interface Features Touch Screen Navigation, Speech Recognition and Nuance's Vocalizer® Text-to-Speech Technology.

Verizon Wireless announced a suite of services for all Verizon Wireless Android smartphones to help customers who are blind or have low vision to perform ordinary wireless tasks in a simple, intuitive way. Mobile Accessibility is a suite of 10 accessibility apps, from speech recognition to text-to-speech technology, and offers customers who are visually impaired an innovative way to use their smartphones.

The Mobile Accessibility suite, running on the nation's largest 4G LTE network and largest, most reliable 3G network, 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 of the features once the app is downloaded and do not have to launch each app individually from within the suite.

To experience the full functionality of their Android smartphones, customers can use the touch QWERTY keyboard with voice synthesis or the voice recognition technology to perform a variety of tasks, including:

Customers can download Mobile Accessibility in Verizon Apps under Productivity and Tools - Utilities on Android smartphones with operating systems Android 2.2 or higher. 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.
