RiVO keyboard for VoiceOver Article

I’d like to introduce a revolutionary keyboard made for iPhone VoiceOver users. It’s called RiVO which stands for Remote interface to VoiceOver.

RiVO is a portable Bluetooth keyboard about the size of a credit card. There are 12 buttons in the middle just like telephone keypad, and there are 4 additional buttons on the left and on the right, respectively. It provides unique interfaces for quick, precise and yet comfortable control of VoiceOver. Moreover, it makes typing and editing text fast and easy, music control simple and handy. It has been designed to be a productivity keyboard for people using iPhone or iPad with VoiceOver. RiVO users surely use a greater number of apps everyday than just VoiceOver users.

These are some of the comments we have received from RiVO users around the world:
- RiVO is the most accurate and efficient tool for the blind to use smartphone.
- I have 275 apps on my iPhone and RiVO is really valuable and helpful.
