Did you know that there are no regulations regarding accessibility when developers create apps for smart devices? In a world where almost everyone communicates through a tablet, phone, or computer, several app companies are doing their part to create accessible applications for people with disabilities.
Big Keys, SwiftKey Symbols, and RogerVoice are a few examples of these programs.
Big Keys allows the user to customize the size of the virtual keyboard on a mobile device. Emojis, numbers, and symbols can be enlarged as well. Color schemes and keyboard themes are available. The app was created for individuals with low vision.
SwiftKey Symbols was created for the communication between someone with Autism or a communication disability and a caregiver by using predication technology. The symbols on the app can be changed and adjusted depending on the user.
Finally, RogerVoice was created to assist deaf individuals when communicating by phone. RogerVoice uses voice recognition technology and provides a real-time transcript of what the person on the phone is saying.
