Oh nice one! Good luck with development. Hey, will this screen reader have 
its own text-to-speech engine or could I use, say, the Eloquence that comes 
with Talks?

o yes. it is for symbian and the smart phones based on windows.  I am
planning to write the program for all symbian and windows based phones, for
now, but will explore the possibility of writing java based ones in the
future.  Cheers!
