Default SureType and Screen Reader

Please Login to Remove!

Hello - I am a new poster. Great place to learn more about Blackberry products and tips.

My only issue with Blackberry is my addiction to reading emails while I'm driving. This is not a good practice, and I need to find a solution before I get hurt (or hurt someone else) on the road.

Is there a Blackberry device that has some type of screen reader software, whereas it will read me my messages out loud? This would prevent me from having to look at the screen while driving.

I prefer a device with the SureType feature, since I am now used to typing in this manner.

Any thoughts? Thanks!!!

There are no devices with this software pre-installed that I am aware of. The software for BBs is going to be basically the same from model to model. The good news is that I'm sure I've seen some software like what you are looking for available aftermarket. Do some searches here on the forum and probably on Google for a screen reader for BlackBerry. It shouldn't be model-specific except for the version of BB OS it works with.

Greetings, pmac, and welcome to the Forums.

I am not aware of that software offhand. You might search around the Aftermarket software section here, I am moving this message there, as well.

Good luck. Be careful. I am guilty of reading while driving and have actually had to put it away lately.

There is a "soon to be released" product called the iLane™ that I read about that might be what you are looking for:

iLane™ : Voice-based hands-free and eyes-free email, calendar, and phone while driving.

I know that I will take a look at it once pricing and availability are announced...
