Accessible cell phones

Use any ATT iPhone 3GS, 4 or 4S on the Puretalkusa for as little as $10 per month, or you can use StraightTalk plan for $45 a month unlimited talk text and data, and get the benefits of the very Blind Friendly iPhone.
There is a great new free app to help people with visually impairment identify objects like the mystery packets of condiments or the color of your shoes. Tap Tap See is the best of the three apps we have tried in this category. The other two being Omoby and Talking Goggles
The iPhone is the top in non-visual accessibility, but the contract price will set you back about $80 a month. As it comes out of the box, it is fully accessible. There are many apps which turn the iPhone into a multi function tool to give turn by turn GPS, compass directions, OCR scanner for free, and so much more.

The video below gives a good demo of how a person who is blind can use an iPhone

Finding a cell phone

which can be used without sight, or that has buttons large enough to push with limited hand movement is not easy. The iPhone is the best answer. There is some software for Android phones, but in my experience it only marginally useful, at best. Tmobile, ATT and Sprint will give you this software if you ask for it. When I put it on my LG Optimus, it drained the battery completely by noon, whereas without the talking software the phone would have 50% battery at midnight.

If you have a cell phone that is easy to use for those with special needs, please send me an email about it so I can share that info with others
