The American foundation for the blind working with FloCo has designed a specialized note taker for the vision impaired. The Access Note provides a simple easy method for a vision-impaired person to handle written information – a once difficult task for the vision impaired. The App is great for taking notes such as class notes, a shopping list, telephone numbers, addresses and other written information. The App is great for students and makes taking notes in class easier.
The App is reasonably priced at about twenty dollars (sales for $19.99 on the App store).
The Access Note was designed to be compatible with technology used in today’s world. The Access Note is an app that works well with the Apple I Phone, Bluetooth and other display keyboards. The App makes using items such as Internet and E-mail easier with technology your sighted friends such as peers, co-workers and other family members are using on a regular basis.
