- With VoiceOver iOS, Android TalkBack, and wireless braille display compatibility, the Uber app makes it easier for riders who are blind to get from A to B at the push of a button.
- Audio is not needed for full functionality of the Uber app. Assistive technology such as visible and vibrating alerts can help riders who are deaf or hard of hearing use the Uber app easily, and in-app features, such as the ability to enter destination, can facilitate non-verbal communication between the rider and driver-partner.
- UberWAV lets riders who use non-folding, motorized wheelchairs to connect with drivers in wheelchair accessible vehicles that are equipped with ramps or lifts.
- We using several uberWAV models in cities around the world (e.g. in New York, Washington, DC, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, London, Bangalore, and Toronto) to determine which wheelchair accessible vehicle options best meet the needs of our riders and driver-partners.
