After applauding your Editorial Team and active community...Has anyone used a Virtual Mail service that is reliable & accessible?
For those that don't know what a 'Virtual Mail' service is, it's a mail forwarding/processing carrier that in the US has an agreement with USPS to process mail. They in addition to forwarding your mail and providing you a mailing address like USPS, UPS, Fedex and the like, they also provide MAIL SCANNING feature. Some offer mail scanning through their website while others have an iOS app as well, where both the outside of your envelope and internal mail documents are scanned, uploaded to their servers, and can be viewed on their secure website or iOS app on your iPhone or iPad.
I understand that KNFB Reader (and other OCR apps) can do a great job reading our mail. However, these Virtual Mail providers offer the convenience of receiving our mail on our behalf and scanning them for us, we just login to their site or app to view our mail. We can then ask them to discard, forward or store our mail in their facilities.
With this said, they are in high competition and they market their services very well, but which ones have you guys used and tested for reliability and accessibility? Again, their prices vary widely from FREE to $49.99 per month, but which ones are RELIABLE & ACCESSIBLE, that is the question!
For your convenience, below is a listing of the most popular Virtual Mail providers, I would love to read your reviews as fellow blind and low-vision users... :)
