Eyes- Free Keyboard - comming soon!

eye's free keyboard

The creator of "A Special Phone" has done it again! Another innovative and amazing vision free dialing system for the iPhone!

This application now can completely replace the native iPhone calling application! There is now no need for the iPhone's built in calling application. "A Special Phone" takes care of it all. You now have built in speed dialing that does not require looking at the phone and keypad dialing using discovery mode! You can simply touch your finger anywhere on the screen, and the application will tell you which number you are touching. When you find the number that you would like to use, you simply tap in it's place and it will dial that number! If you do not need eyes free dialing, you can use the keypad just as it is and tap away at the number just like the basic iPhone dialing application.

As you tap the numbers in both "eyes free" mode or regular mode, the application will speak the number and show a much larger number on the screen for those who can see, but are best off with larger images and numbers. Those who need vision correction as well as the eldery will greatly benefit from this great new feature.

You now have a complete dialing application that you can use any time, all of the time!


NeoSeeker Explores the uses of "A Special Phone" has recently found the "A SpecialPhone" application and finds that it is one of the more useful applications in the app store. Here is what they had to say:

As you might know, the Apple iPhone has a ton of third-party applications, ranging from a guitar emulator to the --oh so wonderful -- iBoobs. Now, maybe these are not so useful, but they are quite fun. However, a new app, called Shake & Dial by Muhieddine El Kaissi, can defintely be filed under the 'useful' category, especially if you happen to be visually impaired.

Muhieddine El Kaissi's recently released iPhone, A Special Phone (iTunes link), which attempts to simplify the ability to dial without looking at the iPhone’s touchscreen. Instead, it relies on other functionality of the phone, such as its accelerometer."
