    • Challenge Three: ACCESSIBLE CONTACT MANAGER WHO • For many of us it’s easy to find and call a contact of our phone agenda. But what if this process became much more difficult? The phone would lose much of its functionality and usability. • There are groups of people for which this task is not so easy: • Visual impairment • Cognitive impairment and intellectual disabilities • The elderly • The introduction of the Smartphones has pushed more information and possibilities to the phone agenda, including social networks synchronization, messaging applications and more. This fact has increased the complexity and difficultness of the agendas and its management. THE CHALLENGE 1. Find and open the Accessible Contact Manager application (*). 2. If it’s not already set, choose the most appropriate setting for you. 3. Once you can navigate through contacts, lookup for the following contacts: Mother, Dentist. (*) Application developed by the Polytechnic University of Madrid16 28th September 2011
    • Pre- Challenge Four: Tekla introduction WHO • For people with dexterity impairment, it’s difficult to use a mobile phone because the keys are very small and in case of touch screens they are very sensitive, the surface is small and requires a high degree of precision. • Depending on disability you can find different solutions WHAT • For Smartphones with a touch screen, we can find Tekla, which reduces the interaction with the mobile device to “just one tap”. • Tekla is an on-screen scanning keyboard with two usage modes: 1. Navigation: For a general use of the phone and its applications. 2. Keyboard input: When a text input is needed (i.e. SMS). • You can either tap on the screen or plug a joystick for wheelchair users. • As you get used to Tekla, you can increase the speed of the “selector”(*) Application developed by the International Development Research Centre 17 28th September 2011
