IBM SCREEN READER/DOS
--- DISCONTINUED. (Verified 11/2002) RETAINED IN DATABASE FOR REFERENCE. --- The IBM Screen Reader/DOS is a voice output screen review program designed to enable people who are blind or have visual disabilities to hear the words on a display screen using a speech synthesizer. This product is also being effectively used with individuals who have a reading dysfunction. The Autospeak function monitors the screen and alerts the user when changes, such as status or error messages, occur. A dedicated 18-key keypad controls the Screen Reader/DOS functions to enhance productivity by reserving the keyboard for application functions. Now the Screen Reader/DOS can be controlled from the keyboard as an alternative. Powerful Reading functions allow the user to read complete screens, paragraphs, sentences, words, or letters, reading only the information the user needs. Customized profiles are provided for the most popular programs. By using the Profile Access Language, a profile can be modified or created. Built in Host/LAN (local area network) support enables connectivity. The windowing capability provides easy access to many display formats featured by today's popular applications. The system includes three 3.5-inch KB and six 5.25-inch program diskettes that include on-line documentation, back-up diskettes, 3 audio cassettes (installation instructions, tutorial, and tools and techniques), a User's Guide (in print), and a Reference Manual (print). Braille documentation is available separately ($75). Peripherals include the IBM Screen Reader Keypad and the IBM Keypad Cable. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: The system requires a minimum of 512 KB available memory, any supported text-to-speech synthesizer, one serial port, and the Screen Reader Adapter Card, P/N 57F1588 ($120 for PC XT and PC AT). COMPATIBILITY: For use on IBM PS/2, PS/1, PC XT, PC AT or IBM compatible computers. DIMENSIONS: 5.9 x 7.5 inches.
