I don't keep track of these notetakers all that much, but I could have
sworn FS already had one of these in the accessible GPS area; anyway,
here's their announcement.

        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 StreetTalk(tm) VIP.

        Running on Freedom Scientific's PAC Mate Omni(tm) 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

        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.
