I think it would be nice to be able to install it on a java phone, as those are the cheepest you can get. Will this work on windows moble and pocket pc phones?

Hi Jim. If i am not mistaken, the lg phones utilize java as their operating systems. I have not, at least for the present, developed it for the java platform because my knowledge of java is severely limited. However, if there is a demand for it in the future, I'll extend it to the java based mobile phones. If you are thinking of upgrading your phone then, you should get either a symbian based or a windows CE based mobile phone. Cheers! ----- Original Message ----- From: "Jim" <jhomme1028@xxxxxxxxx>

Hi,
I feel really dumb asking this, but ... how do you figure out if your phone will work with it. I don't think my LG VX 8300 does., but I don's know. If not, then when it comes time for my renewal, I would think about looking into getting phone that works with it. What question or questions do I need to ask.

Thanks.

Jim

Hi Chris. Unfortunately, it will not be free. However, it will be a cheaper alternative to talx and mobilespeak which run to hundreds of dollars. Usability will be the driving force behind the development of the screen reader, so you need not worry about it, it will be taken care of, first and formost.

Sorry, I can't beta test, but will this screen reader be free? What will it
allow us to do? Thanks in advance.

Spectacular, I'd recommend the name

Hi all.  Within a few days, i would have finished developing an
alternative screen reader for mobile phones which would hopefully be a
cheaper and more flexible replacement to talx and mobilespeak. I would like to give an opportunity and priority for a few members of the list to
beta test my product.  I have not come up with a name for this mobile
screen reader yet, so feel free to come up with one and let me know. The screen reader is written with visual c++ and developed on visual studio
2005 using the smart phone device emulator.  I will only allow for 5
applicants, and one very important criteria is the ability to positively contribute to the development of the software, either in programming terms or in usability. If you have the inclination to help me with this, please write to me privately. Selected beta testers will be given a free copy of
the full working software.  I am sorry that i'll not be able to pay
financially, but i hope the gift of the software and the satisfaction of
seeing the development through will be enough of a reward.  Thanks and
cheers!
