[Rogers Wireless launches the Nokia 6682RVI equipped with Nuance TALKS screen-reading software.]

Toronto -- Rogers Wireless today announced the launch of the Nokia 6682RVI, equipped with screen reading software to make it accessible for customers with vision loss.

The Nokia 6682RVI, equipped with Nuance TALKS(TM) software from Nuance Communications gives consumers with vision loss equal and independent access to many of today's advanced wireless features and services. Nuance TALKS essentially turns the Nokia 6682RVI handset into a "talking phone" by converting menus, instructions and content displayed on the screen into audio output through its internal speaker, or an optional wired or Bluetooth headset.

According to Statistics Canada, there are more than 600,000 Canadians living with significant vision loss. Current projections indicate that with our aging population, this number will increase dramatically over the next ten years. Nuance TALKS allows these customers to be more wirelessly connected since audible cues provide access to the services available on the phone.

Devices like this are invaluable for anyone, particularly seniors, who experience difficulty reading small print."

With Nuance TALKS and the Nokia 6682RVI, customers can:

- With audio feedback, send and receive emails and text messages
