Re: accessible sms texting from windows with NVDA

Hi, Glen,

My mom and I are testing back and forth because she can't hear now. She can talk to me but if I talk to her, she can't hear me. Texting is the only way we can communicate now.

Well, if you have eMail on your phone, you can text people via eMail by sending an eMail message to 10-digit-number@the domain For example, to text to a cell phone on Verizon, you eMail to:
5555555555@vtext.com
All cell companies have domains for eMailing to.

Hi,

If you have an Android device, try Pulse SMS http://www.pulsesms.com/
Its web site works well though, in my experience, the app doesn't.
I know of no way to do this from the iPhone or another phone type, unfortunately. Obviously, if you want to do this from a number other than that of your phone, that is, if you don't care about your SMS appearing from, and replies to those messages going to, a number different from your own phone number, you can use any of the VOIP services. See, just for accessible examples http://www.callcentric.com http://www.les.net HTH, Aman

Hi, I'm pretty sure you can use email to do this if you get the carrier's address right. Here's a link on how to do this.

Basically, you open up your email client and put the number you're sending to in followed by the carriers SMS gateway address.

Hi,


I have been looking into doing this. However, there are so many
choices I am uncertain which to choose.


Has anyone else figured out any of the apps and services that are
accessible using NVDA to do SMS texting from a Windows system? If so
which are accessible and easy to use?


Thanks.
