This is how the world's first national standards body has chosen to celebrate World Standards Day on 14 October. This year's global message is 'Standards make the world accessible for all'.

"People have different needs and abilities", says BSI Film Producer Sofie Sandell. "In this video we want to give them a voice to make sure that their needs are heard and fulfilled thanks to standards". The documentary touches on several aspects of accessibility, from buildings to websites. The key messages are: If people don't have access to buildings, transport and the web they are locked out from society; standards create opportunities for an active life for all. BSI Group has always been committed to establishing and supporting standards which promote the availability of products and services to all consumers, regardless of their disability or impairment.

And, as populations are increasingly ageing and disabilities are often acquired with age, their number is set to increase. Although EU legislation has been in place since 2000 to implement the principle of equal treatment in employment, disabled people still remain among the most disadvantaged social groups throughout Europe. Indeed, 45% of Europeans recently surveyed think that discrimination amongst disabled people is particularly rife.

  • Introducing The Android Accessibility Framework Starting with Android 1.6 — fondly known as Donut —the platform includes an Accessibility API that makes it easy to implement adaptive technology such as screenreaders. Android 1.6 comes with a built-in screenreader called TalkBack that provides spoken feedback when using Android applications written in Java. The next few videos will progressively introduce TalkBack, SoundBack and KickBack, a suite of programs that augment the Android user interface with alternative output. All of these special utilities are available through option Accessibility in the Android Settings menu. Once activated, the accessibility settings are persistent across reboots, ie, you need enable these tools only once. Notice that because I have accessibility enabled on my phone, all user actions produce relevant auditory feedback. Thus, each item is spoken as I move through the various options in the settings menu. The spoken feedback also indicates the state of an item as appropriate. Activating SoundBack produces non-spoken auditory feedback; KickBack produces haptic feedback.
