The South African Mobile Telecommunications Accessibility Survey

As people living with disabilities in South Africa, we are faced with various challenges, from the mundane to the most unimaginable levels of discrimination.

 

When I interact with my mobile or cellular provider, I find a lot of things lacking.  Instead of complaining about it though, I am currently interacting with some parties to do something about this.

 

For this reason, I have created a survey.

 

If you are living with a disability and if you have the means and the time to fill it in, it will be appreciated.

 

You could even ask someone to fill it in for you.

 

To register for participation, please go to http://www.3bhost.co.za/surveys/index.php/866376/lang-en

 

This survey will be available until 11:59 PM on 23 April, 2013.

 

Your answers will be kept anonymous even though you would be registering an account for participation.

 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this survey, please feel free to email me at admin@AccessTech.co.za

 

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day further.

A possible review of the HTC One X

It’s been a while since we’ve done a phone review.

Hopefully, [crossing my fingers and toes], we will be able to bring you a review of the HTC One X.

I never really bothered to say much about the HTC ChaCha for various reasons but, honestly; I am excited about the new ONE X.
