GW Micro Featured on Tek Talk Jan 23, 2012
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fort Wayne, Indiana (January 23, 2012) - GW Micro, Inc. (www.gwmicro.com) will be featured on Tek Talk, hosted by Accessible World, on Monday, January 23, 2012.
GW Micro, maker of Window-Eyes, recently released a free program called GWSkype, a program that is plugged into Skype™ and makes it accessible to all blind and visually impaired people. "This program became viral, and blind people around the world started using it almost as soon as it was on the market," said Bob Acosta, Chair of Accessible World. Due to its extreme popularity, GW Micro was invited on Tek Talk to demonstrate the capabilities of the GWSkype as well as to discuss future developments.
"GW Micro is very excited about this latest innovation. It has helped many blind people communicate using Skype via a completely accessible interface," said Steve Clower, App Developer for GW Micro. The GWSkype app can be downloaded for free at GW Micro's App Central via the following link: http://www.gwmicro.com/apps/gwskype. GWSkype can be used ad-free by Window-Eyes users, and be used with very short advertisements for those who are not running Window-Eyes.
