This is interesting news.
While travelling in the car this morning I was listening to this week'sMain 
Menu.  The first item contained an interview with two representatives of 
Nuance, previously Scansoft, who now develop Talks for series 60 mobile phones.

People may not know that there is now an equivalent to Talks available in order 
that people using larger print can access the series 60 phones.  This product 
is called Zooms and was the subject of the item.   I mention this because I am 
sure this will present a lot of interest to people, especially since it can 
also be run in conjunction with the latest release of Talks which is 2.5.

Upon contacting Computer Room Services, I discovered that they are hopefully 
going to sell Zooms, but it is unclear at the moment as to when this will be.  
I was hoping to purchase it for someone for Christmas, but quite whether I will 
be able to, I am not sure yet.  Apparently, RNIB are now the master distributor 
of Talks and presumably Zooms, which I did not know, but it seems we are 
waiting on them to make a move in the right direction prior to anyone being 
able to purchase it.

As I say, I thought people may be interested because it seems a great product.  
You can check out the main menu programme which is broadcasting right now, or 
from the replay Wednesday section on aCB Radio.
