Re: accessible sms texting from windows with NVDA

Hi,

All the solutions I mention below are for Windows. The only requirement for a phone is when you want your messages to appear as if they come from your mobile number. That is, if you want to type your messages into your Windows machine and have those messages show up on the recipient's device with your mobile number as the from number, you will need a phone. As I said though, if you don't care about that, any VOIP service that offers SMS will work.

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

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.
