CTIA Recognizes Global Accessibility Awareness Day .
In recognition of Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) today, I want to highlight new developments in technology that can have major impacts for individuals living with disabilities.
From online content to software development and mobile devices, CTIA and its members understand the importance of making technology more accessible to all users.
AccessWireless.org is your first stop to learn about wireless services for consumers with disabilities or handsets that are compatible with specific needs such as hearing, vision, mobility, speech and cognition. We’re proud that our website has helped thousands of people find the “perfect” plan and device that fits their needs.
Here are some inspiring stories from the AccessWireless.org Newsroom on how wireless tech has helped people with disabilities:
- Follow the inspiring story about how one student is using Bluetooth to develop low-cost technology that can help individuals with cerebral palsy and other physical challenges communicate.
- Facebook and Twitter have made changes to their platforms to ensure their content is accessible, underscoring the importance of businesses making sure their platforms are accessible to as many users as possible.
