The Fat Finger Email Program

Finally an email program for the disabled!
"MCS Exchange" is an email program designed for use by those with disabilities, visual impairment, or limited fine motor skills.  This program combines the look and feel of the standard Outlook email, but adds photos for both name and phrase recognition.  The user of this program would simply click on the photo of the phrase they wanted to send (i.e. a picture of someone waiting at the pharmacy may imply “Can you pick up my prescription from the pharmacy”), then the photo of the person you wanted to send the email to (Mom, Dad, Grandma, etc.), then send.  When the receiver responds to the message, the user of this program can just simply click on the photo of their loved one, caregiver, etc. and the message would be read aloud in a clear, easy to understand, voice. All this is accomplished by selecting (3) very large, easy to navigate, buttons.
