Dolphin launches the world’s first access software on a portable Pen

Announced back in March, Dolphin Computer Access is now offering versions of it’s assistive technology software that run from a USB pen drive.

Dolphin Computer Access Limited today announced the availability of the world’s first access software available through a portable Pen device. Dolphin’s version 6.51 software suite is now available to order in two separate editions: the PC Edition and the Dolphin Pen Edition.

Using the Dolphin Pen, it is possible for blind and low vision computer users around the world, to walk up to any computer and find their access program running automatically, and configured just the way they like it! From 11 th May 2005, Dolphin’s Supernova, Hal, Lunar and LunarPlus will be available to order in the new Dolphin Pen Edition, as well as the standard PC Edition.

Unlike all other screen access products, the Dolphin Pen runs from a USB Pen Drive ? a small portable device that measures just 6cm long and 2cm wide, which plugs straight into the USB slot of a computer. This allows a user to carry their software with them to any “Dolphin Pen Friendly” PC and run Supernova, Hal, Lunar or LunarPlus instantly, as if it were on their own system. The Dolphin Pen automatically saves a user’s own preferred settings, so that every time the Pen is used there is no need to reconfigure the settings. Just plug it in and go! When the Pen is removed all of the user settings are automatically saved back to the Pen.
