CTIA-The Wireless Association announced the redesign of AccessWireless.org, the association’s website to help people with disabilities, seniors and their families find the right accessible wireless products and services.
As part of the wireless industry’s continued commitment to serving people of all abilities, AccessWireless.org is the initial website that consumers should visit for information about accessible wireless handsets and services. For the first time in the U.S., consumers can “Find a Phone” by searching and comparing the accessibility features of a variety of wireless handsets through the Mobile Manufacturer Forum’s (MMF) Global Accessibility Reporting Initiative (GARI). CTIA and its member companies received recommendations and insights from a diverse working group to ensure the redesigned website fit the needs of the accessibility community. The group consisted of policymakers from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and consumer representatives including the American Foundation for the Blind, Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA), American Association of People with Disabilities, TDI, Inc., the Autistic Self Advocacy Network, the Alzheimer’s Association and the Wireless Research Engineering and Rehabilitation Center (RERC).
