Introducing Nokia Braille Reader: SMS for the visually impaired

and further described as

Introducing Nokia Braille Reader: SMS for the visually impaired.

Hi all! Let me introduce you to the Nokia Braille Reader. We here at Nokia,
and our partners as well, have been thinking of how to do something
concrete about accessibility for quite some while. And now, our new Nokia
Braille Reader application gives SMS for the blind and visually impaired. It
captures received SMS messages and brings them to the foreground for reading
using Braille and tactile feedback. The application was concepted together
with actual users and researchers focusing on the topic, and we are now
happy to show the first experimental version of the concept. We hope to get
your comments and feedback so this application could be truly optimized
to your use. We also want to share our enthusiasm in creating innovations
for you and with you.
