In Nokia’s most recent Conversations post, they discuss ease of accessibility for Windows Phone. It’s nice to see that the company is striving to make their handsets as compatible as possible for those who may have visual or hearing impairments, but the bad news here is that there’s no screen reader. The blog post goes into the different text sizes available, as well as mentioning a screen magnifier and high contrast display.
The lack of a screen reader means those who are completely blind will have trouble using the phones, but given the fact that Nokia has a screen reader for their Symbian devices, we’re sure development of one for Windows Phone 8 might not be too far around the corner.
