Hi Sandra,

http://www.screenreader.net.

To be honest, I don't think it's that great, but I won't get into that on
here.

All the best

Steve

How good is it?  what's the difference between other GPS  I am assuming that

it is a GPS system that has been created by someone who is blind is that 
right?

Hi Sandra,

Talkback is a free screen reader that comes with most modern Android phones.

All the best

Hi,

I couldn't agree more, which is why we provide Android training on Talkback
as well as iOS training.  Even Mobile Accessibility is no longer necessary,
because Talkback is so good.

All the best

Steve

I looked at the Georgie feature list and it didn't offer much more, if
anything, than the built in (and free) accessability features of newer
versions of Android.

The money would be better spent training the VI how to set up and use
these basic features, and on the benefits of smart phone usage in general.
