Empower® software update 1.21 brings even more digital engagement for new generation Accent® 1400 devices.

Join-In the fun of Facebook™ and Messenger

Join-In web apps, created by a partnership with D-Bur, offer more ways for users of the Accent 1400 to enjoy an accessible digital life. Stay connected to friends and family with this second set of Join-In web apps for Facebook and Messenger. (Check out the first set of apps here.)
