[access-uk] Re: iphone Accessibility Features

Hi Jackie
Only reason I asked is that I have an ipod touch and never come across any 
dedicated accessible applications might be worth a separate question
Cheers

Hi Sam

I don't have one, but am only going by what is being written and spoken
about by visually impaired users.  There are accessible applications for
obtaining train times, weather reports and detection of colours.  I
understand some have had joy with OCR as well.  I really can't comment on
their accessibility though.  It is an interesting and evolving time for
mobile technology.

Hi Damon

I think it is why I would prefer an iTouch as opposed to an iPhone for the
very reasons you outline.  I have Talks and Nokia handsets, so there would
be no real purpose in my migrating to an iPhone and giving myself a lot of
grief for nothing.  The iTouch, however, with its extra storage capacity and
usable applications, does interest me at a later date.

What I'd add is that practical use while on the go is difficult. 

The iPhone is more of a two handed experience and somehow finding and
dialing numbers on a busy street is difficult on a touch screen phone of
that shape and with that functionality. 

In conclusion, iPhones work best at home.
