Making Mobile Phones Accessible to the Blind and Visually Impaired
Since 2002 Code Factory has developed accessible software applications for mainstream mobile phones running on Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile and BlackBerry. In 2010, Code Factory expanded its product portfolio to another media, Television.
We have developed 4 types of products:
- Screen readers for mobile phones: Allow you to use the device even if you cannot visually read the screen. Information displayed on the screen is rendered in synthesized speech output generated using Text-To-Speech (TTS) technology and routed through the device’s speaker or a headset. Screen contents can also be presented in Braille if the mobile phone is connected to a Braille device with a refreshable Braille display. Mobile Speak, Mobile Accessibility, Oratio for BlackBerry.
- Screen magnifiers for mobile phones: Enlarge and improve readability of screen contents, detect areas of interest to make them more visible, and let you perform hotkeys to obtain a magnified view of screen icons conveying nontextual information. Mobile Magnifier.
- Mobile tools: Enhance the functionality of your mobile phone by allowing you to perform different day-to-day activities more independently so that you can convert your device into much more than just a phone. You can travel with Mobile Geo GPS aid, read on the go with Mobile DAISY Player, and identify the color of an object by taking a picture of it with Color Recognizer.
- Accessible Television software for PC: Reads aloud the information in the TV menus, allowing you to control your television in an independent way. TV Speak.
