[prMac.com] Lake Ronkonkoma, New York - Data by Design is proud to introduce The Fat Finger 1.0.1 for iPad. “The Fat Finger” app is a text to speech program that is intended to be used by both children and adults that have difficulty accurately selecting letters from a keyboard.
The user of this app will touch the keyboard in the area of the intended letter or number. A separate screen will then open up with six larger letters or numbers from that area. This larger screen will allow the user to accurately view, select, and/or hear their desired letter or number. After a selection is made the program automatically returns to the main keyboard for further entry.
The goal of this app is to provide a clean, fun, and easy to use interface with clear and easy to understand voices. Individuals with visual problems or fine motor difficulties will benefit most from this product.
