ArialPhone has introduced a wireless device for quadriplegics, paraplegics, Parkinson’s disease patients and others with limited mobility.
The earset is packaged with software that lets users access Internet calling apps that require microphone input, including speech rec apps like Dragon Systems’ Naturally Speaking and IBM’s ViaVoice.
Users can answer calls and place phone calls by saying a person’s name or phone number. This specialized ArialPhone accepts wiring for a wide variety of external switches designed for disabled users, including pillow switches, sensitive switches, soft switches and strong switches. It accesses ACT!, Outlook and Outlook Express databases. More here.
