Welcome to Talking Flight Monitor, the tool that makes the flight simulation environment accessible to everyone. Our software interfaces with the aircraft and simulation environment, providing universal access to the world of flight simulation.
We are Jason and Andy, the founders of Talking Flight Monitor. We created Talking Flight Monitor out of frustration with other simulator addons which were limiting, inaccessible, and others which were discontinued. Jason started Talking Flight Monitor as a project to keep him sane during strict Covid lockdowns in Canada. Andy has 16 years of experience in accessibility and software and web development.
Why should you use Talking Flight Monitor? Our software makes it easy for anyone to experience the thrill of flight simulation, regardless of their level of experience or ability. With our intuitive interface and powerful features, you’ll be able to take to the skies in no time.
Talking Flight Monitor uses FSUIPC from fsuipc.com to interface with the simulator. Our software is open source and can be found on our GitHub page. We support both Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D. Downloads of Talking Flight Monitor are available on our website’s download and preview releases pages. Please note that Talking Flight Monitor is not available for download on the simulators’ websites.
One of the key features of Talking Flight Monitor is its support for PMDG aircraft, which are highly detailed and realistic add-on aircraft for flight simulators. With Talking Flight Monitor, you can enjoy the full experience of flying these complex and realistic aircraft.
We also host special anniversary flights that provide a great opportunity for our community to come together and celebrate our achievements.
Talking Flight Monitor has made appearances at several conferences, including A11YTO, an accessibility conference focusing on digital accessibility and inclusive design; GAConf, a conference dedicated to making games more accessible to gamers with disabilities; ACB of Maryland, a conference organized by the American Council of the Blind of Maryland focusing on issues related to blindness and visual impairment; and Flightsim Expo, a conference for flight simulation enthusiasts where attendees can see the latest in simulation hardware and software.
Talking Flight Monitor is proud to be associated with the BVIPilots community, a group of sim pilots with varying levels of vision, including totally blind pilots. They believe that everyone should be able to enjoy flight simulation realistically, and are happy to help even if you have other disabilities. Please note that Talking Flight Monitor and BVIPilots are two separate entities. You can contact BVIPilots through their website or their Facebook page.
