If you were to get an iPhone, all you would have to do is get someone cited to turn on voice over. However, if you got an android phone, you have to download a $100 program to get speech.

What you said is correct   With the iPhone 4s  all you have to do is hit the dictate button and start talking. However, it's not always perfect. 

I have the iPhone 4S. Actually, I'm sending you this email via it right now. I don't really know much about android, but I have heard that Apple's voiceover is a lot easier to use than the program I mentioned.

Hello Everyone:

I will soon be in the market for a new Cell phone;  I haven’t had a new one in a couple of years.

I am currently with Att and have a monthly plan; with all the changes and progress with Smart phones is there one phone that is more Blind friendly.

Is Android better then a I phone.

One feature I have heard of is when sending a text message you can speak the message and  don’t have to type anything.

Any feed back would be helpful.
