A touchy subject

If you have passed any bus stops or opened any magazines recently, you can't have missed the adverts for touch screen phones that seem to be everywhere. This is subject I have blogged about before describing how these devices are inaccessible for many disabled people, now AbilityNet are sharing their take on the subject.
Over on the AbilityNet blog they are 'talking' about real alternatives. By that I mean, voice control and screenreaders which are now beginning to be available on the go, the talking iPod Nano being just one example. They are also keeping track of new control systems with a cool video carousel, perfect for getting a gadget fix. So well worth a read on the AbilityNet blog.
