In the ongoing series of Prism Days I have been demonstrating how the application has been designed to make it easy to extend it’s functionality. One of the example extensions I have been showing is a tool for the translation of the text displayed on any of the Prism screens in to speech to aid access for users with visual problems. With this extension Prism talks to you.
The extension is based upon a service from Textic Ltd, a UK based software company.
Check out the demonstration in one of the Broadminster demonstration Prism tenancies – click on the ‘Click to Show Text Reader’ icon in the page footer. There is a page in the Prism Developer Wiki that describes the simple steps taken to install it.
