Social Responsibility


Decorative image for Social Responsibility:Accessibility and Usability

Sony applies technology to incorporate accessibility into our products and services.  We strive for a future where everyone shares the moment, overcoming the limitations of age, physical conditions, and environment.

Consumer electronic products and services are becoming increasingly multi-functional and user interfaces are becoming more complex. Against this backdrop, Sony is continuously collaborating with disabled individuals, and conducting tests to assess factors such as viewability, understandability, and responsiveness. This testing is done both during the product and service development process, as well as after those products and services have been released into the market.

Sony is proud to take a leading role in the development of international accessibility standards, including recent efforts to develop standards for text-to-speech functionality in televisions and to standardize user interfaces for audio, video, and multimedia systems and equipment.
