Visually Impaired and Blind Persons can use ANDTEK's Attendant Console Solution to the Full Extent

MUNICH and HALLBERGMOOS, Germany, May 19, 2011 - ANDTEK's attendant console solution "AND Desktop AC" is now available in
a version including braille display. This way visually impaired and blind
persons can use all functions of the attendant console. Users of the
attendant console solution of the unified communications specialist ANDTEK
can e.g. get an overview about the status of all phones within the company
and they can generate call statistics like the average call duration.

The use of communications workplaces for blind persons is a major factor
especially in public institutions and with public authorities, since there
are legal requirements.

Blind persons obtain the important information via a braille display
respectively a braille line being installed under the keyboard at the
conventional workplace. This way the blind person gets a tactile feedback
about the most important display contents. Standard phones with headsets are
used as phones.

The user selects an address directory via shortcut and directly enters
the requested name. The results appear shortened on the braille line. Then
the requested entry is confirmed and the phone number is dialed

"With this solution blind employees can use office and telecommunications
software in daily routine in a complete and trouble-free way," says Klaus
of BAUM Retec AG, the leading specialist in products and services
for blind and visually impaired people. BAUM Retec AG developed and
customized the braille line especially for the attendant console.

"Even persons having a high degree of visual impairment have the
opportunity to use the entire range of communication offered by modern
systems," says ANDTEK manager Roland Russwurm.
