      Code Factory launches Mobile Speak Pocket, a full-fledged screen reader
      for
      Pocket PC Devices





      Terrassa, Barcelona, 15th of August 2005



      Code Factory S.L. announces the availability of Mobile Speak Pocket, a
      screen reading software for Pocket PC and handheld devices running on
      the
      Windows Mobile operating system.

      Mobile Speak Pocket provides blind and visually impaired users access to
      all
      the functionality of the device, allowing users to discover the exciting
      world of Windows Mobile-based PDA’s which have been traditionally
      inaccesible. Mobile Speak Pocket provides blind and visually impaired
      users
      with the flexibility of choosing a Pocket PC device of their choice from
      the
      open market, which apart from providing a cost advantage will also
      enable
      them to use mainstream devices on par with their sighted counterparts.




      "Mobile Speak Pocket demonstrates our commitment to providing blind and
      visually impaired users access to mainstream devices through innovative
      solutions" says Eduard Sanchez Palazon, Chief Executive Officer of Code
      Factory S.L.


      Mobile Speak Pocket in combination with a PDA and an external QWERTY or
      Braille keyboard is an inexpensive yet powerful notetaking solution.
      Mobile
      Speak Pocket is compatible with a wide range of Pocket PC devices from
      leading manufacturers such as HP, Dell and Fujitsu-Siemens. As Windows
      Mobile technology advances, the device can easily be upgraded.
      Additionally,
      Mobile Speak Pocket includes a powerful off-the-shelf scripting language
      called LUA to make any third party applications accessible.


      Mobile Speak Pocket works with popular speech synthesizers like Fonix
      and
      Acapela. At the time of this press release, the following languages are
      supported:

      American and British English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Danish,
      Swedish, Dutch, Turkish, Portuguese and Czech.



      Support for additional languages like Norwegian, Polish, Russian,
      Chinese,
      Finnish and Greek will be added soon.



      With Mobile Speak Pocket the user will, among other features, be able
      to:

      - Access the calendar
      - Manage contacts
      - Write notes and manage tasks
      - Write, send and receive email messages
      - Browse the internet with Pocket Internet Explorer
      - Create, edit and read Word documents using Pocket Word
      - Work with spreadsheets in Pocket Excel
      - Access and change the device settings
      - Use tools and utilities like the File explorer
      - Listen to audio books and play music files.
      - Use the extensive Mobile Speak Pocket commands for basic
      functions
      and text navigation.
      - Synchronize the device with your PC or other devices


      Code Factory is closely working with several Braille device
      manufacturers
      for providing support for these devices in Mobile Speak Pocket.



      Code Factory will be releasing a version of Mobile Speak Pocket for
      Windows
      Mobile-based Smart phones towards the end of this year.

      and
