What is the Amóvil seal?

Amovil seal is based on the harmonized European Standard EN 301 549 and certifies that a mobile device is accessible to some or all of the users’ profile shown below:

  • Low Vision
  • Blind
  • Hard of Hearing
  • Deaf
  • Poor Manual Dexterity
  • Lack of Manual Dexterity
  • Limited Comprehensio Skills
  • Color Blind
  • Speech Impairments

How is the seal obtained?

Companies interested in certifying their devices must request an accessibility audit and a budget by writing to amovil [at] fundaciononce [dot] es.

Upon the acceptance of a budget and service proposal, Amovil experts will review the device for accessibility conformance following a methodology developed by Fundación ONCE and ILUNON Tecnología y Accesibilidad that has been validated by accessibility experts. The methodology is based on W3C Web Content Accessibility Standard 2.1 and the harmonized European Standard 301 549 Accessibility requirements for ICT products and services.

Once the review is complete, Amovil will issue a seal showing the device’s level of conformance. Amovil will also provide the following information:

  • Description of the accessibility requirements the device conforms to.
  • Description of accessibility barriers identified
  • Description of the level of severity and frequency of barriers found
  • Recommendations to remove barriers and avoid them in a new operating system upgrade

The above information will be made available to clients for further consultation. Seals will be provided in a PDF format for printing. Amovil will also provide the necessary knowledge to help companies interpret and understand accessibility guidelines and will address any questions or concern the client may have.
