My Accessible Google: Non-Visual Access to Google's Calendar Application
Povidi LTD has announced that for the first time users who are visually impaired will now be able to access Google's Calendar Application. Up until now, this robust, online means of organizing one's calendar has been virtually inaccessible to persons who are blind or visually impaired. But no longer thanks to the development efforts of Povidi, a New Zealand-based development firm committed to providing orientation and navigation solutions as well as intuitive access to otherwise relatively inaccessible web-based applications by persons who are blind or visually impaired.
Povidi has created a user interface to Google's Calendar Application that can be freely utilized by visiting http://www.povidi.com/mag/. Users must first have a Google account; once they sign in and grant this application access to their Google calendar, users may create, store, and review appointments in the same manner as their sighted peers. Povidi was able to accomplish this milestone in the wake of a tragic earthquake that has decimated Christchurch.
The staff at Povidi and Flying Blind, LLC are encouraging all of their customers to give "My Accessible Google" a try and to provide their feedback. For more information about "My Accessible Google", please contact:
