AccessNote now available through Apple's App Store!

AccessNote is an iOS app that enables users who are blind or visually impaired to take notes, create documents, and access applications.  In addition to being a low-cost alternative to traditional notetakers costing $2000 or more, AccessNote allows users to combine efficient notetaking with many other features and functions of the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

AccessNote was developed by the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) in conjunction with FloCo Apps, with support from the Wireless RERC. The user interface is customized for the iPhone’s screen reader, VoiceOver, and Apple Wireless Keyboard or an iPhone compatible braille display. This allows people who are blind or visually impaired to use the same popular devices that their sighted peers are using in classroom or business settings.

“We designed this app to complement the iPhone’s other popular features, like web browsing and email, so that users who are blind have all the tools they need in one, handy device.” said Carl R. Augusto, AFB president and CEO.

AccessNote is now available for $19.99 through Apple's App Store:
