I believe currently Oratio is what you want which works on some Blackberry handsets it is available through Humanware presently.

Hello Clive, the screen reader for Blackberry phones only works on the curve
8580, and that phone costs $350 without a contract, and the screen reader
costs an extra $450. Also, Research in Motion is changing its operating
system to a windows system and, as far as I have been told, at present, that
latest windows mobile operating system is not accessible.

Hello all,

is there such a thing as a Blackberry that will accommodate speech
output? If not, what alternatives would you recommend? Suggested devices
must be Windows compatible, as my employers haven't gone down the Apple
route.

Thanks,
Clive
