Vienna: RAZ Mobility, a provider of mobile assistive technology, is announcing the launch of the Lucia phone. Lucia is an easy-to-use basic mobile phone specifically designed to address the unique needs of people who are blind, low vision or hard of hearing. Someone who is completely blind can use Lucia just as fully and effectively as someone who is sighted.
The phone’s voice guide is available in English, Spanish and more than ten other languages so that it can be enjoyed by English and non-English speakers alike. It also has a large, high-contrast display with enlarged text, as well as the option to amplify the audio with the press of a button. Lucia is an unlocked 3G mobile phone and confirmed to work on U.S. carriers such as AT&T, T-Mobile, and compatible GSM networks such as Cricket Wireless, Red Pocket Mobile, Straight Talk and Metro by T-Mobile. An unlocked 4G phone will be available in the future.
RAZ Mobility is the exclusive distributor for the United States and Canada, and is offering the phone to consumers, State government agencies, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, wireless providers, non-profit organizations and for-profit companies.
