Emerging markets mobile giant Vodacom today announced the launch of smartphones for the visually impaired in its South African market. These will include the Nokia C6 Zoom, Nokia E6 and Nokia C6 Speaking.

The phones also QWERTY keyboards, for legacy sakes.
The C6 Zooms phone has software that magnifies font sizes and graphics up to 16 times, allowing customers with poor vision to access their phone with greater ease.
