25 June, 2009 by Peter Verhoeven

With Nuance TALKS and ZOOMS, blind and visually impaired users are able to take advantage of the many features found on todays popular mobile phones, including contact directories, caller ID, text messaging, help files, access to Web browsers, and other screen content. And TALKS and ZOOMS 4.0 enables consumers to choose the TTS software they want to use to power all updated features, including Nuance trusted Vocalizer Mobile and ETI-Eloquence.

In addition to the new robust advanced audio capabilities, TALKS&ZOOMS 4.0 also features:

SIM-Based Licensing: TALKS&ZOOMS can now be licensed for a GSM SIM card, offering users the freedom to leverage the software on as many handsets as they like where the same SIM card is used. Alternatively, TALKS&ZOOMS can still be licensed to a handset, used with an unlimited amount of SIM cards.

DAISY2Go Audio Book Player: TALKS&ZOOMS 4.0 includes DAISY2Go, a Digital Accessible Information SYstem’s (DAISY) text and audio book player that enables users to read content right from their mobile phone. DAISY books have the benefits of regular audio books, but they offer extras, like embedded navigation information, enhanced content, and synchronization.

Support for Quickword: TALKS&ZOOMS now includes the ability to leverage Quickword, enabling users to retrieve email documents and their attachments, read them, and even make edits right from their phones.

"TALKS&ZOOMS 4.0 was designed to ensure that the blind and visually impaired community can take advantage of today’s sophisticated mobile devices – from being able to access a variety of features while on the phone to having the option of choosing the TTS that meets an individual’s needs,” said Michael Thompson, senior vice president and general manager, Nuance Mobile. "So far the response to this latest version of TALKS&ZOOMS has been extremely positive, as we’re removing even more limitations of the traditional mobile phone to help ensure all consumers have access to the productivity and freedom that today’s mobility solutions provide.”


TALKS&ZOOMS 4.0 supports more than 20 languages worldwide and is now available for Series 60 second and third edition phones.
