>> (February 1, 2013) -For the millions of Americans with vision loss
>> looking for a simple, convenient way to take notes at work, at
>> school, or at home, the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) today
>> launched the AccessNoteT, a specialized notetaker for the iPhone,
>> iPad, and iPod touch.
>> "Apple products have earned high points from us for their
>> out-of-the-box accessibility for users who are blind or visually
>> impaired," said Carl R. Augusto, AFB president and CEO. "We designed
>> this app to complement the iPhone's other popular features, like web
>> browsing and email, so that users who are blind have all the tools they
need in one, handy device."
>> A traditional notetaker is a portable electronic device that enables
>> users who are blind or visually impaired to take notes, create documents,
and access applications.
>> These devices, extremely valuable for people who are blind or
>> visually impaired, usually provide either speech or braille output
>> (or both). They retail for upwards of $2,000 and much more for those
>> with a built-in braille display; AFB's AccessNote app is available for
>> In addition to being a low-cost alternative to traditional
>> notetakers, AccessNote allows users to combine efficient notetaking
>> with many other features and functions of the iPhone, iPad, and iPod
>> touch. This allows people who are blind or visually impaired to use
>> the same popular devices that their sighted peers are using in classroom
or business settings.
>> This is the first notetaking app developed and designed specifically
>> for users with vision loss. AFB evaluated many of the other available
>> notetaking apps, but found none to be very efficient or user-friendly to
people who are blind or visually impaired.
>> What sets the AccessNote apart includes:
>> d Seamless Navigation.
>> Customized keyboard commands make notetaking more intuitive and
>> productive than ever before, including quick access to important
>> features like Search All Notes, Search Within a Note, as well as several
>> d Automatic Saving. With an automatic save on every few keystrokes,
>> notes will never be lost.
>> d Cursor tracking.
>> When navigating among multiple sets of notes, users can always pick
>> up right where they left off.
>> d Unparalleled Simplicity.
>> With a clutter-free interface, users can create, read, find, and
>> sync, making it easier to spend more time with actual content and less
time with tools.
>> d DropBox Integration.
>> All notes, always on hand. DropBox keeps AccessNote in sync with the
>> user's desktop (and other devices) so their notes are always available
and backed up.
>> d Compatibility with Bluetooth keyboards.
>> AccessNote is optimized for efficiency with the Apple Wireless
>> Keyboard and for today's wireless braille displays.
>> AccessNote was developed in conjunction with FloCo Apps and is
>> available on the App Store(sm).
