“I use different voices for my text to speech and I use Siri to send notes to lecturers as an instant message (SMS). It is the flexibility of the iPhone that is so good – you can multitask using several tools at once.”
“When it comes to social networks and communication online, I have several accounts but I am able to access them all using Miranda IM – Miranda IM offers one interface that can link with for instance Skype or Windows Live and Facebook”
It is a Windows only free download, works with a screen reader and has a simple interface. The program can also work directly from a pen drive.
