Speaktoit: A friend of mine, who is legally blind, is pretty techy and likes to do things with is phone like update facebook and twitter, navigate websites, send texts and emails, etc. He’s got an Android phone an uses an app called Speaktoit Assistant. We’ve been playing with it on the weekends now for a few months and it seems to do most of what he needs his phone to do. It has an Apple version as well and they state that soon, there will be Windows Phone, Blackberry, and Bada versions. It’s about a dollar. Here: http://www.speaktoit.com/
