Solution to the Full Extent
MUNICH and HALLBERGMOOS, Germany, May 19 /CNW/ - ANDTEK's attendant
console solution "AND Desktop AC" is now available in a version
including braille display. This way visually impaired and blind
persons can use all functions of the attendant console. Users of the
attendant console solution of the unified communications specialist
ANDTEK can e.g. get an overview about the status of all phones within
the company and they can generate call statistics like the average call
The use of communications workplaces for blind persons is a major factor
especially in public institutions and with public authorities, since
there are legal requirements.
Blind persons obtain the important information via a braille display
respectively a braille line being installed under the keyboard at the
conventional workplace. This way the blind person gets a tactile
feedback about the most important display contents. Standard phones
with headsets are used as phones.
The user selects an address directory via shortcut and directly enters
the requested name. The results appear shortened on the braille line.
Then the requested entry is confirmed and the phone number is dialed
"With this solution blind employees can use office and
telecommunications software in daily routine in a complete and
trouble-free way," says Klaus Lindemann of BAUM Retec AG, the leading
specialist in products and services for blind and visually impaired
people. BAUM Retec AG developed and customized the braille line
especially for the attendant console.
"Even persons having a high degree of visual impairment have the
opportunity to use the entire range of communication offered by modern
systems," says ANDTEK manager Roland Russwurm.
