Atinav Inc. is distributing a beta version of its Java translator for access to network data from any type of mobile device.

The New York company's software, aveAccess, recognizes carrier and hardware protocols and automatically translates requested information to the appropriate format. When installed on a server hosting Web or other network data, it translates at the time of user demand, rather than converting data in advance for specific devices and formats.

It makes Hypertext Markup Language, e-mail and other data available over telephones, cellular phones, Wireless Access Protocol-enabled phones, personal digital assistants and pagers.

AveAccess consists of three modules: a WAP gateway that supports any mobile network standard and is accessible from any wireless service; AudioWeb, which converts HTML into speech via the Voice Markup Language and speech into text for use on non-WAP phones; and Wireless Server, which integrates Sun Microsystems' Jini technology for communication with Jini devices.

The Java product is platform-independent and will work with any operating system and protocols, according to company officials. It is downloadable from the Web at
