Most accessible PDAs use either a braille or computer style keyboard for input. However, some allow the user to input and access information by speaking into them.

Voice recorders are small, portable, personal organizers that allow the user to access features similar to those found in accessible PDAs: calendar, address book, calculator, and note recorder. A voice recorder can help the user keep track of important information by speaking information into the device and then having it digitally recorded.

The user then accesses the information by either pressing command keys or speaking commands into the device. The organizer then replays the recorded information for the user.
