- BlackBerry Screen Reader Update & Video Demo
  • BlackBerry Screen Reader Update & Video Demo

    The Accessibility team at RIM has been hard at work improving the BlackBerry Screen Reader app, and has just released a update for the product. With the feedback from many users, they have made some improvements as well as new added features. The app also now supports two new BlackBerry smartphone models, the BlackBerry Curve 9350, 9360, and 9370, as well as the BlackBerry Curve 9320, 9220 smartphones. Here is the full list of changes with the update:

    Basic Browser Support
    BlackBerry Screen Reader is now revised adding the ability to have a loaded webpage read to you.

    Help Menu

    Through BlackBerry Screen Reader settings, you can now access an English help menu to provide you with additional assistance.

    Additional Shortcut Features

    Previously, the application shortcut (Right Convenience Key + Send) only supported email messaging. The updated shortcut is now designed to allow you to re-read a loaded webpage without refreshing your browser; it also allows you to easily read SMS and BBM messages, from the most recent to least recent message.

    Additional Caller ID Screen Support

    The first version of the BlackBerry Screen Reader would only read the number that was calling. The functionality has now been extended to the caller ID screen to also identify the contact’s name (if available).

    Unified Inbox improvements

    The unified inbox feature has been updated and now identifies Facebook® and Twitter® messages. You can now differentiate between your e-mail and social media messages.
