Accessible to Blind and Visually Impaired
<p>For people who are blind or have vision impairments , accessing a phone in a typical office can be a difficult challenge. Caller ID and other important pieces of information are presented visually on the LCD display of most phones. While the numbers and other buttons on a phone are easy for a blind or visually impaired person to push because they are tactile, the information on the LCD display has been impossible to access . . . until now.
<p>GW Micro and Tenacity have joined together to make office phones accessible to blind and visually impaired people through the use of GW Micro's Window-Eyes and Tenacity's accessaphone. accessaphone provides audible caller ID information from the telephone as well as audible message waiting, alternative input methods to conduct call control including intuitive keyboard hot keys (i.e. Alt A to Answer, Alt H to Hold and Alt C to Conference, etc.), a call log, the option to keep notes about the call, and much more.
<p>"While accessaphone does include built-in text-to-speech, some users may select the option to silence accessaphone and enjoy the added benefits of using Window-Eyes." said Dustin Armstrong, Director of Operations of Tenacity . "GW Micro has been a force in making various technologies accessible to blind consumers," said Dan Weirich, GW Micro's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "We are very excited to work with Tenacity to help continue to make the workplace even more accessible."
<p>For pricing and more information on accessaphone (<a href="";></a>), contact sales@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Blind and visually impaired consumers who want to use accessaphone will need the latest version of Window-Eyes (<a href="/"></a>). After installing Window-Eyes, a free Window-Eyes script must be downloaded from GW Micro's Script Central that allows Window-Eyes to work with accessaphone located at <a href="/Scripts/Accessaphone"> </a>.
