eSSENTIAL Accessibility offers a new app for Android devices targeted for people with limited dexterity who have difficulty using touchscreen smartphones and tablets.

The app features hands-free technology, touch-replacement tools, and voice recognition capabilities.

“Many people take for granted the fact that they can use handheld devices to communicate with others, complete transactions, and research information online,” says Simon Dermer, managing director of eSSENTIAL Accessibility, in a media release.

“However, there is still a significant percentage of the population who face barriers when using mobile devices. In fact, people with disabilities represent the largest minority group in the world. Our Android application opens up the digital world to millions of people by giving them an opportunity to use devices otherwise inaccessible to them,” he adds.

This technology is available on a no-cost-to-user basis through eSSENTIAL Accessibility’s brand partners. With the app, customers can use Android devices to engage with their favorite brands without incurring additional costs to make mobile phones functional, according to the release.
