Sabine Lobnig is the Mobile & Wireless Forum (MWF) Deputy Director for Communications & Regulations.
The MWF is the international association of companies with an interest in mobile and wireless communications including the evolution to 5G and the Internet of Things.
One of the MWF’s main projects is the Global Accessibility Reporting Initiative (GARI). GARI’s mission is to inform consumers about existing accessibility solutions in the market today and help them identify devices with features that best help their individual needs.
This includes mobile phones with built-in screen readers, “simple access” for persons who find today’s user interfaces overwhelming, Wearables with haptic feedback, Smart TVs that allow voice recognition for accessing features, or mobile apps that have been developed specifically to help overcome a barrier in daily life like finding accessible locations.
