Accessible Cell Phones

by Donna J. Jodhan

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.

This article gives very little information. The Apple iPhone, for example, is a completely accessible phone that doesn't require you to buy a screen reader. You can send email, surf the web, listen to stream audio, and with all of the applications available, there is no end to what you can do. Yes, it's expensive, but I don't foresee a day when low end phones will be very accessible, they won't support screen readers.
