“We inform users about the accessibility features of their mobile devices and the barriers they may face, and inform manufacturers about the needs of their clients.” David ZANOLETTY GARCIA
Amóvil is an initiative led by the ONCE Foundation, developed by Technosite, and sponsored by the Vodafone Spain Foundation to enable access to mobile phones for all. It aims to help persons with special needs identify accessible mobile devices that are compatible with available assistive technologies and that suit their preferences and needs. It is an interactive website that also offers information on mobile applications that comply with Universal Accessibility and Design for All requirements.
Persons with disabilities and the elderly are often unable to access mobile phones. These devices often lack the necessary accessibility features to meet their needs and preferences.
