Huawei adds accessible app to its smartphone

Huawei has partnered with urban mobility app Moovit, to help people with disability move safely around cities via public transport.


The smartphone app incorporates accessibility features for people with disability that includes screen reading features for blind and low vision users, identifies wheelchair-accessible routes and stations, calculates step-free routes and is equipped with optimised menus and buttons for those with hand-motor disabilities.

The Moovit app has been added to the rapidly expanding HuaweiI AppGallery and is available for use in Australia with an easy guide to travelling via a range of public transportation options. It is an addition to the growing Huawei portfolio of navigation and map apps, such as TomTom and Here WeGo.

Moovit combines information from various transport operators and authorities along with the user community to provide real time, accurate route planning for the journey ahead. Multimodal journey planning and real-time arrival information are utilised, so users know exactly when their bus or train is arriving; a Live Directions feature with Get Off Alerts provides step-by-step guidance for the entire journey; and Service Alerts allows users to avoid disruptions on frequently used lines.


To download Moovit users can visit the AppGallery available on any Huawei smartphone.
