Verizon Wireless has announced Mobile Accessibility, a suite of ten accessibility apps for Android powered smartphones, designed to help visually impaired customers more easily use their smartphones. The accessibility apps suite features touchscreen navigation, speech recognition and voice synthesis powered by Nuance’s Vocalizer text-to-speech technology as well as Braille output. Customers can download Mobile Accessibility in Verizon apps under productivity and tools then utilities with Android operating systems 2.2 or higher at no additional charge, but the service does require a data plan.
