GARI’s mission – as relevant today as it was 10 years ago: GARI’s mission is to inform consumers about existing accessibility solutions in the market today and help them identify devices with features that best help their individual needs. This includes mobile phones with built-in screen readers, ‘simple access’ for persons who find today’s user interfaces overwhelming, Wearables with haptic feedback, Smart TVs that allow voice recognition for accessing features, or mobile apps that have been developed specifically to help overcome a barrier in daily life like finding accessible locations.
Throughout 2018 and across many meetings and events related to accessibility across the globe, the need for better information on available solutions as well as education of users and digital capacity building among persons with disabilities and older users, was a recurring theme and reconfirmed that having one central source of information on accessible devices is very much needed.
The report outlines the progress made with the GARI project and the MWF's initiatives on mobile accessibility throughout the year 2018.
