ACCESSIBLE SMARTPHONE/TABLET APPS

Increasingly, people with disabilities are buying and using smart phones and tablets to find services and information. The mobile devices may be more convenient, the touch screens may be easier to use for some persons than keys on a keyboard, and voice commands may enable some with physical impairments to use the mobile devices’ features more easily. The thousands of specialized apps can save time or highlight a needed service—like an app that locates disability parking places. With the ADA 25 Chicago’s focus on a game-changing aspect of technology, the LIFE Center asked experts in the RIC Technology Center to develop recommendations for smartphone and tablet apps for people with disabilities.
