Hi Dave

Of course, the I-phone is very comparable to Nokia smart phones with Talks, 
Access and Wayfinder that I have paid for, but it's the extra cost again 
that is too much for me.

I could sell my N95 to subsidise the new cost, but I'd prefer to keep it as 
a crutch until I got used to the I-phone.

Sigh!  Now, if I could get more work...

Cheers

Barry

iPhones are not that expensive compared to Nokia's with Talks and can be got
on tariff on many networks. I don't consider them particularly expensive to
be honest!

Thanks for this , Tony.

Wow!  Sounds like a cross between the expensive barcode reader and the
PenFriend.  Of course, one needs to buy an I-phone, which ain't cheap, but
if you are inclined to do so, this is a must app.

Cheers

Barry

Hi Folk,

Haven't got my head around this as yet as I haven't got an iPhone but it
sounds good indeed!

Your thoughts.

This looks like it could be an interesting application for IPhone users.

DIGIT-EYES AUDIO LABELING SYSTEM ADVANCES INDEPENDENCE FOR VISUALLY IMPAIRED

Digital Miracles, LLC, is pleased to announce a major advancement in
assistive technology for people who are blind and visually impaired. The
Digit-Eyes Audio Labeling System has been approved for sale on the Apple
Apps Store. As of June 23rd, the millions of people worldwide with
substantial vision loss can begin downloading the iPhone application to
recognize and label the important items in their lives.

Reasonably priced at $29.99, the Digit-Eyes phone app is a powerful tool
that fits into any budget and life- style, turning challenging tasks into
easy, safe activities. The Digit-Eyes system gives users a simple way to
make custom labels for everyday items and it identifies packaged
goods-joining advanced software with the iPhone, the Internet, home
computers, printers, and inexpensive off-the-shelf labels. People of almost
any visual ability can now put groceries away and grab the right
prescription bottle independently.

"This is the most exciting product I've worked on," says Nancy Miracle,
president of Digital Miracles and software engineer with 40 years
experience. "The limited functions and high cost of existing assistive
devices just seemed wrong, so our objective was to develop a product that
performed better than any comparable technology and offer it at about 10% of
the price. Combining the need for identification with a natural, powerful
and robust tool like the iPhone made the project irresistible."

With Digit-Eyes, users can print custom text labels or record audio labels
that they make by scanning specially coded labels and speaking into their
phones. They attach the labels to household items, and the messages are
played back whenever the codes are rescanned with their iPhones. This
Digit-Eyes app can also scan manufacturer codes (UPC, EAN, ISBN) and say
what's inside the package after checking the vast Digit-Eyes product
database. Each iPhone stores over five hundred hours of information and can
be used just about anywhere.

"This product is amazing! By labeling leftovers with their contents and date
refrigerated, I can determine if my dinner will be edible or not. Next, I'll
be labeling my jungle of AC adapters so I'll never again have to guess what
they all go to. The ease of use and flexibility of the process make it an
invaluable tool!"
Randy Builder, Seattle, Washington.

The first public display of Digit-Eyes is at the National Federation of the
Blind convention in Dallas, Texas, July 4 - 7, booth B113. The exhibit then
moves to the American Council of the Blind convention July 10 - 15 in
Phoenix, Arizona, booth #41. Attendees can experience the use and capability
of the system with hands-on demonstrations. Details, explanations, and
examples will be available at both conventions, or immediately on-line at
www.DIGIT-EYES.com.

Digital Miracles, LLC, the parent company of Digit-Eyes, is a Texas-based
corporation that develops customized software solutions. The Digit-Eyes
Audio Labeling System was created by a team of engineers, software designers
and members of the visually impaired community.
