This year, Sales Director Melanie Endres and Chief Technical Officer Ferran Gállego will be representing Code Factory.
For another year Code Factory has been one of the key players in the accessibility industry, and expects innovation and creativity to continue and grow in 2012. “To make technology accessible for our users, we have always strived for the best, and will continue to do so,” says Eduard Sánchez, CEO of Code Factory. “The fact that our products are offered free of charge through companies such as Nokia and AT&T, and will soon be offered by Sprint, shows that we are on the right track to provide an enormous range of products for mobile devices and platforms and that the barriers for customers to get started from an economical point of view are getting eliminated. For us, this is a huge step forward into a future that brings free accessibility for everyone.”
This year’s product highlights:
• Code Factory’s Mobile Accessibility will be featured in many presentations and new launches all throughout CSUN.
- First demos of version 1.9 of Mobile Accessibility which finally provides Braille support for Android and which should be launched before the end of March on the Android market
- Sprint plans to offer free English and Spanish versions of Mobile Accessibility under the names “Wireless Accessibility EN” and “Wireless Accessibility ES” to both postpaid and no-contract customers through the Android Market starting this quarter.
