At this stage, Fairphone 1's operating system (OS) will rely on the existing Android OS functionality for accessibility issues. This includes the following options: [Services > Optional] Talkback; [System] Magnification gestures, Large text, Power button ends call, Auto-rotate screen, Speak passwords, Text-to-speech output, Touch & hold delay (Short, Medium, Long), Enhance web accessibility and Quick boot.
A quick web search will also return plenty of Android apps (for voice commands, enlarging fonts, etc) that enhance the user experience for those with impairments. In the future, we hope to work with members of the community that are interested in these issues to make the experience better.
