I thought the PDA that my housemate uses ran Windows Mobile, but I've
just been informed that it uses Windows CE.

How "simple' the cell phone that is used, depends upon the speech
engine it has.  (My housemate uses the GPS in the cell phone to tell
drivers where they should have turned.)

This gets into a11y design.  I don't know how it is done, but I've
seen touchscreens that can be used with people with no vision, with no
issues.  (Next time I see one of those being used, I'll take a look at
the screen changes, to figure out what/how it is done.)
