Kyocera Kona from Sprint

Available for Free, Kona Makes it Easy for the Visually Impaired to Stay Connected opens a new windowhttp://newsroom.sprint.com/news-releases/sprint-launches-kyocera-kona-industry-first-feature-phone-with-verbal-translation-of-internet-browsing.htm

For the visually impaired, using a mobile device hasn’t always been easy. Kyocera Kona from Sprint helps to solve that problem by providing an easy-to-use compact flip phone that is the first feature phone in the industry to offer verbal translation enabling Internet browsing. Kona is also the first feature phone to offer a user interface with verbal descriptions of navigation, with which the device describes what is highlighted on the screen and works with menus, messaging, contacts, missed calls, notifications, and many other functions. Other accessibility features include variable speed text to speech service, which reads texts to users, high-contrast user interface options to accommodate a variety of vision ranges, dedicated In Case of Emergency (ICE) and 911 shortcuts, and a tactile keyboard with well-defined buttons.
