There has been a huge push towards making cell phones more accessible and I for one am just delighted to see this. Developers have come a long way in developing software that can be used to make cell phones more accessible. Now, what we need is for the price of accessible phones to slide downward.
An accessible cell phone with all of the bells and whistles is not beyond the realm of possibility. An accessible cell phone that we can use to surf the Internet, send and receive emails, play games, use GPS, plus more. One that would contain the same features that mainstream persons have. We're getting there, slowly but surely and in time to come we will be able to have an accessible cell phone that we would be proud of. The thing is though: Like everything else, we have to wait much longer before we see products that are halfway decent. We are always having to play catch up and in the case of the accessible cell phone, it is no different.
