    Was just wondering about the BlackBerry Screen Reader, as i'm visually impaired.

    Have looked for it a few times on App World with no joy. Is the app still going?

    If anyone knows, that would be great!

    Also any apps that help with the sound during calls? as in volume? as I have hearing aids. I find the sound great clear quality, but find my mums 8900 curve better sound wise (loud during calls) than the 9780 I bought.
