ICT Accessibility / Specific Needs Connecting and expanding your world

We're committed to providing easy access to a range of offers and services suitable for persons with various disabilities. Together with organisations for disabled persons we place special focus on meeting the needs of senior citizens, persons with visual impairments, and persons who experience communication barriers (Deaf/deaf, hard of hearing, hearing impaired, deafblind, and those with speech impairments). By meeting these specific needs, we enable you to stay connected, live a better life today and build a better tomorrow.
