Saturday, March 7, 2009

   Tek Talk Training special time Saturday March 7, 2009

This Saturday Michael Hingson, Director of National KnfbReader Mobile 
Sales for the National Federation of the Blind will demonstrate the 
exciting KnfbReader Mobile Reader product line for the blind and 
learning disabled - featuring the first cell phone that reads and 
translates print into voice.

The knfb Reader Mobile is a major advancement in print access for the
   Blind.  The software, delivered on a multifunction cell phone, 
allows the user
   To snap pictures of any printed material and have it read aloud immediately.
   The first of its kind, the pocket-sized device allows individuals to
   Have print analyzed and read aloud in real time and in real life situations.

   The latest version is now able to read in a variety of languages
   Including French, German, Dutch, Belgian Dutch, Italian, and Castilian.
   Additionally, the software is able to translate between languages, 
displaying and reading aloud translated text.
