Today, Code Factory’s development team is proudly saying to the world “YES WE CAN” by announcing Mobile Speak’s support for free step-by-step navigation using Nokia Ovi Maps!*“When Wayfinder announced the end of Wayfinder Access and our Symbian userswere left without any other accessible GPS solution for Nokia phones, we knew we had to make something work. Our commitment towards our users justified the decision to take on this new technical challenge and the biginvestment it represented for Code Factory,” explained Eduard Sánchez, CodeFactory’s CEO. “We at TalkNav are delighted that Code Factory has taken this step to empowering Symbian handset users to access the Ovi Maps product. With the demise of the Wayfinder Access GPS solution, Symbian users had been leftquite literally stranded, other than opting for a change of platform,” saysNeil Barnfather, TalkNav owner and former Wayfinder Access dealer. “CodeFactorys efforts in making Ovi Maps accessible to this significant number ofblind and low vision users represents the true emphasis that this company puts on making its products the very best that they can be” added Neil. With Mobile Speak 4.60 you can use *versions 3.03 and 3.04 of Ovi Maps* in an accessible way to: - Find and track your current GPS position. - Start walking or driving and get automatic notifications when streets change. - Search for specific addresses, points of interest and others locations such as hotels and restaurants. - Create, edit, follow and save a route in Walk or Drive mode. - Bookmark your favourite places and routes, or create your own collection of favourite points of interest. - Execute Ovi Maps and specialized Mobile Speak shortcuts when in Map,Walk or Drive mode. For example, when following a route, press 1 to speakthe next turn, 2 to save your current position, 3 to search a point ofinterest browsing by categories, 7 to bring up a list of route points, 8 tospeak the distance to the destination and its direction, 9 to display adashboard with information about distance, speed and time, or Clear to speakyour current position. - Configure new Mobile Speak settings to customize your Ovi Maps experience. - To learn more about Mobile Speak’s Ovi Maps support, please read our FAQ at http://www.codefactory.es/en/products.asp?id=414 and consult Chapter 14 of our user manual at http://www.codefactory.es/descargas/family_4/ms46_userguide_symbian.html#_Toc278193846 Mobile Speak 4.60 comes FREE for all Mobile Speak 4.xx users and is now available for download at http://codefactory.es/en/downloads.asp?id=347 It is important to check if your version of Nokia Ovi Maps and your phone are compatible:- *Supported versions of Nokia Ovi Maps*: v3.03 and v3.04. These versionsprovide free step-by step pedestrian and car navigation. - *Nokia phones that work with v3.03 and v3.04 of Nokia Ovi Maps*: E66,E71, N86, C5, E5, E52, E55, E72, E73, 6710, 6720, 6730, 6760, 5230, 5800,N97, N97 mini, C6, and X6 Note that only the above Ovi Maps versions and Nokia devices are supported by Mobile Speak 4.60. If you use any other version or device, Code Factory cannot guarantee the correct functionality with Ovi Maps, so before upgrading your version or device, please make sure it is supported. In addition to Ovi Maps support, V4.60 also includes: - *Support for 3 new devices: Nokia 5228, Nokia 5250, and Nokia E55.* - *Support for Mobile Magnifier in all Nokia touch devices *with new features especially designed for touch-screens such as the touch magnification lens which can be used in Stylus mode. - Support for Mobile Magnifier in various 3rd edition phones where itpreviously was not supported: Nokia N86, Nokia E75, Nokia N85, Nokia 5730and Nokia 6220. - Easier way to execute commands using a touch-screen: On pressing theCommand key, the touch mode will automatically change to Keypad mode while the Command key is active, regardless of the current touch mode. This allows all Command key shortcuts to always be easily accessible, since all keys can be simulated in Keypad mode. Very useful when using the magnification lensin Stylus mode. - When "Battery/Signal always" is set to "On" in the Verbosity tab, thecurrent time, battery level, signal level and operator will be spoken whenentering into the standby screen from a different application. This is aconvenient way to check these values without needing to use a Mobile Speak Command (so it can easily be done for example by switching out and back into the standby screen, even on slider phones like the N86, while keeping theslider closed). - A large number of other improvements and bug fixes, as detailed in our User Manual here http://www.codefactory.es/descargas/family_4/ms46_userguide_symbian.html#_Toc278193784 If you are a new Mobile Speak user, download Mobile Speak 4.60 now at http://codefactory.es/en/downloads.asp?id=347 and try it for 30 days for free.
