Re: rugby 4 cell phone

Exactly Gene,


That is what I clearly wrote in the original post of this subject. The rugby 4 is a cell phone with Talkback.  There have been other  cell phone discussed on blindness related list such as the Gusto 3 and the odin.  The rugby 4 is the first such phone that my carrier of choice  has carried.


Hopefully I can check one out tomorrow.


Yes, I have downloaded and read the manual. On pages 84-85 it describes some of the features of Talkback.  But the info in the manual is not enough for me to make an informed   decision.

Just because a phone doesn't run android and is not a smart phone doesn't mean it is not reasonably accessible.  As demonstrated in the presentation I did for accessible World, you can get a feature phone that is reasonably accessible and that doesn't run android.  That is the whole reason I did my presentation, to make people aware that there are phones that are not smart phones that are reasonably accessible.

I would agree with you if the phone ran android but from what i could
tell it doesn't.
 From the little i've heard about the j5 i believe it does so should be
fully accessible.
