Corporate Responsibility
Motorola Mobility

Accessibility

We design technology that puts people at the center of it all. We’re making the devices that do more, so people can do more.  Motorola Mobility is committed to ensuring that anyone who wants to use our products can do so. Our designers work hard to innovate and meet the needs of all of our users - whatever their abilities.

Meeting Everyone’s Needs

We don’t design these products in a vacuum. To understand customers’ needs, we talk to disability advocacy groups, standards agencies and research organizations.  We also work closely with manufacturers of assistive devices for people with accessibility needs, so that their technology is compatible with our products. 

DROID™ by Motorola – the latest in accessibility

The Android operating platform is expanding communications frontiers for people with disabilities. The DROID™ by Motorola family of products (names vary outside the U.S.), for example, not only boast cutting edge design but also embeds many accessibility features.
