July Edit

Nokia, come on, you are behind. RT @berryaccess Beta of #BlackBerry #Accessibility Developer Guide at Tue Jul 07 19:43:41 +0000 2009

August Edit

@nokia Would be pleased to create a page like for #Nokia too. No real #accessibility strategy for #Symbian? Sun Aug 02 20:07:07 +0000 2009

. @Nokia: If #Nokia moves away from #Symbian, is there already a #a11y strategy for #Maemo, including an #accessibility API? Tue Aug 11 12:02:57 +0000 2009

NokiaWorld09 on September 2-3 in #Stuttgart: #Wouldliketogothere @nokia, but all press seats are already occupied :( Thu Aug 20 11:46:39 +0000 2009

. #NokiaWorld09 participants: #Apple, #Google and #RIM already have #accessibility strategies. Where is #Nokia?Please ask. Thu Aug 20 12:08:54 +0000 2009

Vote for #accessibility as #NokiaWorld09 topic at #Nokia corporate blog: #corporateresponsibility Fri Aug 21 07:19:17 +0000 2009

Nokia asks and no one from the #accessibility field is answering? Suggest 'a11y as topic for #NokiaWorld09: Fri Aug 21 11:08:58 +0000 2009

. @nokconv - I'd like to read news about: #Nokia plans to design handsets for disabled: #a11y, #illiteracy Mon Aug 24 09:43:40 +0000 2009

Next tweet is a modyfied RT of @MarcoZehe and @yatil. As a Nokia/Microsoft/Apple user, I fully agree. Tue Aug 25 07:29:45 +0000 2009

RT: For #Apple, assistive technology (AT) is a selling point. For #Microsoft and #Nokia, AT is a barrier and passed onto 3rd parties. #a11y Tue Aug 25 07:32:57 +0000 2009

Loadstone-GPS, qualified non-profit devs wanted: #Nokia, #Symbian, #blindness, #a11y Tue Aug 25 19:53:07 +0000 2009

Nokia: #Accessibility in #QT and beyond, post by Marcus Groeber from #Nuance: #mustread Mon Aug 31 09:43:34 +0000 2009

Nokia: #QT #accessibility framework should be turned on by default: #Trolltech #a11y Mon Aug 31 09:40:25 +0000 2009

What about #accessibility? In the future, you could be disabled too: @Nokconv @forumnokia @nokiabetalabs @OviDeveloper @nokia Mon Aug 31 11:36:34 +0000 2009

NW09 visitors, please ask for #accessibility. You could become disabled in the future. Even then want to use #Nokia products furthermore? Mon Aug 31 13:01:10 +0000 2009

September Edit

@forumnokia Fine. Sorry for my unsensitive question, seems to be only way for getting attention. Can you provide resources for more info? Tue Sep 01 07:19:08 +0000 2009

Disabled people are customers too. No #QT #accessibility would be bad: (Developer.Symbian.Org) #NW09 Tue Sep 01 11:56:43 +0000 2009

Dear #NW09 visitors, Welcome to #Stuttgart in Germany! Remember your many present and potential customers with handicaps. #Accessibility Tue Sep 01 11:57:14 +0000 2009

Mobile technology is a revolutionary chance for the many blind people worldwide, but it must be accessible & affordable. #NW09 Tue Sep 01 15:04:42 +0000 2009

Support Loadstone-GPS: #Symbian, #blindness, #opensource, #NW09 Tue Sep 01 15:03:44 +0000 2009

If you see a blind man with banners outside of #NW09 in #Stuttgart, it could be me, doing Cconsumer-to-Business-PR. :) #a11y Wed Sep 02 06:17:07 +0000 2009

Can't take seriously. Billions of elderly and disabled consumers worldwide and that's all? #Accessibility, #NW09 Tue Sep 01 20:57:32 +0000 2009

No progress? #Nokia plans to design handsets for disabled: (December 2008, Economic Times, #India) #NW09 Wed Sep 02 06:45:48 +0000 2009

Nokia's President/CEO Kallasvuo: "We regard universal access as much more than an industry goal – for us it is a responsibility." #NW09 Wed Sep 02 06:49:45 +0000 2009

In my opinion, #access means #accessibility. #corporateresponsibility, #NW09 Wed Sep 02 06:50:02 +0000 2009

Dear #Nokia: "Don't be evil, be accessible" :) (open letter) #accessibility, #NW09 Wed Sep 02 07:38:50 +0000 2009

Not afraid of #blind folks? #Disability isn't pooh for you? Then please read my #NW09 #accessibility tagged tweets. Wed Sep 02 07:42:33 +0000 2009

For a #blind user, a #Nokia without screen reader is like a Nokia without a screen for a sighted user. #Accessibility, #NW09 Wed Sep 02 12:52:26 +0000 2009

A screen reader should be integrated into OS. #Apple did this on #iPhone 3GS, #Google will perhaps do this in #Android. . #NW09 Wed Sep 02 12:51:46 +0000 2009

Good night #NW09 visitors, sleep well. Hopefully you'll dream of #Nokia #Accessibility like I will do. ;-) Become a visionary. Wed Sep 02 19:06:35 +0000 2009

Good morning, #NW09 people. If you see a blind man outside, it perhaps could be me -- still promoting #Nokia #Accessibility. :) Thu Sep 03 05:13:17 +0000 2009

Not afraid of #blind? #Disability doesn't make you nervous? Perhaps you'd like to read my tweets tagged with #NW09 & #Nokia #Accessibility. Thu Sep 03 15:44:20 +0000 2009

Mmap #accessibility is important for #blind folks (Specific & accurate data). #Navteq #NW09 presentation via @zoomer49 Thu Sep 03 09:07:14 +0000 2009

Navteq, #Haptimap project partner: Accessible haptic, audio & visual interfaces for maps & #lbs, EU founded. #NW09 Thu Sep 03 09:05:19 +0000 2009

Nokia World 09 (#NW09) is over and my Twitter experiment ends as well. It was an attempt of self-help 2.0, using an event hash tag. Thu Sep 03 15:45:45 +0000 2009
