Last month, Read2Go was selected as a potential inductee into the AppleVis iOS App Hall of Fame, and this month, we are pleased to announce that Read2Go was chosen as one of the eight inaugural inductees. This Hall of Fame, to quote from the AppleVis website, showcases “the passion and hard work that app developers put into creating great apps that are fully accessible to VoiceOver users. These apps place powerful tools into the palms of our hands, and give access to services, information, media or entertainment that the sighted world takes for granted.”
We share this honor and want to thank our development partner, Shinano Kenshi Co., Ltd., for their dedication, responsiveness, and commitment to delivering the best possible VoiceOver experience. Shinano is well known for its PLEXTALK® line of talking book players. To make access to books as easy as possible, we made the simplest possible connection between a reading tool and Bookshare. From user response, it’s working really well.
Further, we thank our loyal Read2Go fans for your votes and comments that helped Read2Go achieve this recognition.
This honor is the second we’ve announced in just one week. We are truly humbled and pleased that our mission is bearing fruit, and the people we serve are benefitting from our services. Best wishes to you all for 2012.
