(13/07/2011) Mobile Accessibility 1.4, Free Update Now Available!
Global Web Browser functionality and support for Android Text-To-Speech API
Terrassa (Barcelona), Spain, July 13th, 2011
Code Factory has just released a minor update of Mobile Accessibility, V1.4, which is now available through the Android Market at https://market.android.com/developer?pub=Code+Factory
As announced last week at the NFB convention in Orlando, users of Mobile Accessibility can now set Mobile Accessibility’s web browser as the global web browser. This feature is meant to be used when you are outside of the suite of 10 accessible applications and you wish to navigate the standard Android user interface using Mobile Accessibility’s screen reader component. It means that when you open links from other apps like Email, SMS, Twitter or News reader clients, Mobile Accessibility’s web browser will appear in the list of available web browsers which can complete the action. You can then choose it or even set it as the default web browser. This way you can enjoy the powerful browsing experience of Mobile Accessibility inside and outside the suite.
Also as per user request, Mobile Accessibility now supports the Android Text-To-Speech API. Therefore any of the voices installed on your phone, included the voices which come pre-installed, can be used with Mobile Accessibility.
V1.4 is a free update for all users of Mobile Accessibility. To upgrade, go to the Market application of your Android phone, select My apps, scroll down the list, select Mobile Accessibility, click on the Update button and then on the OK button, which is located at the exact same place. Finally click on the OK button of the “Replace application” window and wait for the update process to be completed.
If you are a new user, go to the Market application of your Android phone, type “Mobile Accessibility” with quotation marks in the search box, and select the version of Mobile Accessibility corresponding to the language of your choice. Note that from today Mobile Accessibility is available in Italian too. Also remember that you can get a Mobile Accessibility Demo for any of the supported languages from the Android Market and try the product for free for 30 days (please note that you can only try Mobile Accessibility once so if you already downloaded the Mobile Accessibility Demo in any language you will not be able to try the product again).
