KioWare for Android adds Storm assistive technology product support
KioWare has released a new version of KioWare for Android kiosk software supporting Storm's assistive technology products such as the Nav-Pad, Nav-Bar and AudioNav. KioWare kiosk software products lock down the device into kiosk mode, turning the tablet into a secure kiosk or purposed device for self-service, digital signage or mobile device management deployments.
Version 3.16 of KioWare Basic and KioWare Full for Android now includes support for Storms ATP devices. These ADA compliant devices allow users with impaired vision, reading difficulties or impaired fine motor skills to navigate through menus or directories that would typically be presented on a visual display or touchscreen. They are designed to provide a tactile/audio interface for any accessible self-service application.
Devices supported include the Nav-Pad, Nav-Bar and AudioNav. KioWare for Android offers out of the box compatibility for those that want to make their Android self-service or purposed device experience accessible. Prior to this integration, devices running the Android OS were limited in their ability to provide an accessible self-service solution.
Additional new features and improvements include:
- Improved provisioning — KioWare for Android 3.16 has added features to improve the ability to provision Android devices. Android devices may now be provisioned via a USB storage device. Provisioning support has also been added for running shell scripts.
- Secure file browser — A secure file browser has been added to allow users to open a file browser and select a file to upload. With new security features, users can be restricted to browsing only allowed files and folders on the file system. New functionality includes the ability for users to take new photos and videos or browse the file system for existing files.
- Multiple exit passcodes and actions — Different exit passcodes can now be used to call different exit actions. This allows for actions to be taken based on the exit passcode entered. Deployers can vary permissions based on user need.
- Reboot schedule management — Reboot schedules can now be used on devices that are rooted.
