Sorenson ntouch Mobile Now Supports iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4th Generation

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Aug 23, 2011) - Sorenson Communications® today announced that ntouch® Mobile, Sorenson's mobile VRS solution, now supports the iPhone® 4 and iPod touch® 4th Generation. Sorenson customers must have a data plan from AT&T® or Verizon® to download ntouch Mobile to their iPhone 4. To download ntouch Mobile to their iPod touch, customers must have access to a Wi-Fi connection.

Sorenson Communications is the leading provider of Video Relay Service (VRS) for deaf and hard-of-hearing people who use sign language to communicate.

In addition to the many mobile services Sorenson has offered in the past, such as Video Center with Sign Mail®, Contacts List, Call History and E911, the new app offers two new features: Sorenson Directory, which provides GPS-based number searches based on the caller's location and one-touch dialing to frequently-used phone numbers; and Share Location, which empowers mobile callers to share their current location via video with the call recipient. Share Location is especially valuable for deaf or hard-of-hearing callers when contacting services that need the caller's location, such as calling for a taxi, placing an order or scheduling a delivery.

As in the past, the ntouch Mobile app provides deaf-communication access for SVRS or point-to-point calling using a mobile device with a forward-facing camera. The ntouch Mobile app for Apple's iOS touch is free and offers full SVRS capabilities as well as access to the industry's highest-quality American Sign Language interpreters. To use ntouch Mobile for iOS, users must download the ntouch Mobile for iOS app from the Apple App Store and request a Sorenson ntouch Mobile account by visiting

"Sorenson is pleased to offer another outstanding mobile product to our VRS customers. At Sorenson, we take pride in creating products that are reliable, convenient and functionally-equivalent," says Ricky Simmons, Sorenson Communications Product Manager.
