Freedom Scientific

Last week, Freedom Scientific released the latest version of its screen reader software, JAWS 10. This newest version of JAWS allows users access to iTunes 8, including support for the iTunes store, a big plus for music lovers! It also supports Microsoft Access 2007 for both braille and speech output, boasts better performance with Microsoft Outlook Calendar, and more!

Also from Freedom Scientific is a portable video magnifier called SAPPHIRE. This product contains a small camera and displays images on a brightly-lit 7" screen. SAPPHIRE can be used for reading lists in the grocery store, a menu at a restaurant, or even signing your name.
