    Freedom Scientific Releases New GPS Solution for the Blind
    StreetTalk VIP Now Shipping
    St. Petersburg, Florida - July 27, 2009) - Freedom Scientific today 
announced the immediate availability of StreetTalkT VIP.

    Running on Freedom Scientific's PAC Mate OmniT Accessible Pocket PC, 
StreetTalk VIP offers GPS navigation that takes into account the unique needs 
of people with visual impairments. The application uses technology from the 
Sendero Group to determine the best route from point A to point B for either a 
vehicle or a pedestrian and presents information to the user with synthesized 
speech and/or refreshable braille. 

    Jonathan Mosen, Freedom Scientific's Vice President of Blindness Hardware 
Product Management, says, "StreetTalk VIP is a powerful tool for exploring your 
surroundings both virtually and in real time."

    Mosen adds that, "During our extensive user testing process, I've used 
StreetTalk VIP in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the 
United States. I can sit in my hotel room and find information about nearby 
points of interest. Using the virtual mode, I can explore the surrounding 
streets while I'm still in my room, and decide where I want to go before 
switching on my GPS receiver and venturing outside. If I'm taking a taxi, I can 
print out the route directions for the driver, or simply monitor my PAC Mate 
Omni and give him directions. StreetTalk VIP gives me great real time 
information, whether I'm traveling on foot or in a vehicle. I love the 
independence I have with StreetTalk VIP and would not leave home without it."

    StreetTalk VIP is available with maps for the US and Canada, Western 
Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

    For more information including a full pricing schedule, visit the 
StreetTalk VIP Web page or contact Freedom Scientific at 800-444-4443.
