As part of Global Accessibility Awareness Day, we want to provide some resources for accessible tools. These are apps and other tools that help people with disabilities use technology more easily.
In the past we’ve written about four accessibility apps:
- Be My Eyes: Connects blind or visually impaired Apple users with sighted volunteers.
- Deaf Wake: Created by a deaf person to help hearing impaired people to wake up on time.
- Children With Autism, A Visual Schedule: Great for kids or adults with autism or ADHD. It’s a picture-based scheduler that makes it easy to create a daily schedule.
- Tattle: It can help the visually impaired and people with dyslexia to get their news narrated by a real human voice.
- Applause: A leading crowdtesting platform that engages real people with disabilities around the world to both make sure their client’s digital platforms are just as easy to use for those with disabilities as they are for those without; and to help a dramatically underemployed population generate an income.
- Contrast: Contrast is an app for macOS that gives you quick access to WCAG color contrast ratios. It helps designers make sure that their designs can be easily seen by people with visual impairments.
