Apologies for cross posting but an Arabic version of ATbar was launched in
the Mada Center, Qatar last week http://arabic.atbar.org . Do please pass
this news on to any Arabic speakers as we are keen to have it thoroughly
tested and for new plugins to be suggested.
It is an open source browser based toolbar offering support for web page
reading with text to speech (Acapela Voice) and word prediction as well as a
spell checker, text enlargement and colour changes. It is also available
in English http://www.atbar.org and there is a market place where you can
make your own toolbars with other plugins such as calculators, easy print
views of web pages etc.
Do put any new ideas for plugins and other assistive technologies on
www.realisepotential.org as we are also aiming to build a community around
open source assistive technologies.
Best wishes E.A.
