(Check out this great guest post from our good friend, Greg. You may remember him from our Inside the BlackBerry Accessibility Team feature. Ed.)
On behalf of the Accessibility Team at Research In Motion® (RIM®), I’m extremely pleased to tell you about the new Clarity theme for BlackBerry® smartphones, available for free in BlackBerry App World™. This theme is designed to help meet the needs of customers who may have visual impairments related to partial vision loss and/or colorblindness, and even customers new to smartphones.
The Clarity theme for BlackBerry smartphones includes the following features:
- Simple, easy to use home screen
- Clickable header on the home screen, enabling customers to choose between seeing Date and Time or Network and Battery information
- High contrast application screens
- Large, text-based application icons on the home screen
- Supports devices running BlackBerry® Device Software version 5.0, including BlackBerry® Curve™ series of smartphones, the BlackBerry® Tour™ 9630 smartphone, and the BlackBerry® Bold™ series of smartphones. BlackBerry 6 OS and touch screen enabled BlackBerry smartphones are currently not supported.
Find more information or download the theme today at BlackBerry App World! Also, you can learn more about BlackBerry Accessibility at our website, or read the Inside the BlackBerry Accessibility Team feature right here on Inside BlackBerry!
