26th Jan, 2007
New alternative format and mobile access solutions from Dolphin Computer Access were attracting considerable interest amongst visitors to the 8th annual conference and exhibition hosted by the Assistive Technology Industry Association held this week in Orlando, Florida.
- EasyConverter cuts through the confusing array of file formats by offering an intuitive one stop solution enabling businesses and educational institutions to both meet and exceed the requirements of disability legislation. Breaking down the barriers to information access and the difficulties associated with providing material in multiple formats, EasyConverter is a straightforward yet powerful conversion tool enabling scanned documents, Microsoft Word files, PDFs, web pages etc. to be instantly turned into DAISY Digital Talking Books, Braille, MP3, large print or ASCII text at the click of a button.
- Smart Hal empowers an individual with little or no usable vision to take control of their mobile telephone by reading the screen contents out loud using high quality synthetic speech. Hear who's calling before answering, review recent dialled received and missed call lists, check battery and signal strength, read and write text messages and emails, adjust phone settings such as ring tones and alarms, create and retrieve calendar entries, perform simple calculations, listen to audio, record voice notes, take advantage of the mobile web plus much more. Smart Hal makes all the features found on a modern windows Mobile Smartphone fully accessible for people who are blind.
Easy Converter and Smart Hal are being demonstrated for the first time at a busy booth 208 in the Exhibit Hall at this year's ATIA conference being held at the Caribe Royale Convention Centre where your Dolphin team are on hand to answer your questions. However, if you are not able to battle the crowds or make it to ATIA before the exhibition closes at 12 Noon on Saturday, rest assured EasyConverter and Smart Hal along side Dolphin's other innovative altformat, assistive and mobile products will continue to be presented at a range of high profile conferences on disability in the coming months. Watch this space for further announcements about where and when you can get a first look at this exciting new software from Dolphin.
