A Company with a Wide Range of Inaccessible Cell Phone Applications

While I was taking a look at a few applications to be reviewed on my blog, I came across X-plore ā€“ the famous file browser for 3rd Edition handsets, produced by Lonely Cat Games. This application is totally inaccessible with Symbian screen readers. Neither can the TALKS Object Viewer detect its text fields, nor can you read a single character inside X-plore. Ashamedly, this is said to be the best file manager for 3rd Edition handsets. At any rate, I was curious to see if the same is true about other applications produced by this company, and found out that LCG Jukebox which is a Symbian music player, SmartMovie which is a video player, Slick which is an all-in-one mobile messenger, and ProfiMail which is a highly popular S60 email client are all inaccessible. The more saddening fact is that I cannot find the company’s contact information on their web site to see if something can be done about this on their part. This means I didn’t have a good day today.

    It is irritating, isn’t it? Myself I came across the ebook/newschannel-reader called “Mobi Reader”. I think it is a great software if it only was accessible. I’m using the latest version 5.3 build 581 and still can’t read the books with Talks.
    Back in january year 2007 I started a topics about this in the mobipocket.com forum. But nothing happens.

    It is indeed frustrating, Thomas. I just hope with the ever-improving status of Symbian screen readers, more and more applications will become accessible in the near future.
