Access Inspector, developed by Techbility, available for iOS and Android devices, is a mobile app designed to assist anyone interested in accessibility assessments of the built environment.

It consists of an easy to use checklist tool for assessing more than 40 common architectural built environment features, including: accessible routes, doors, corridors, ramps, toilets, elevators, signage, etc. Access Inspector is based on leading international standards and technical specifications, providing users with the best practices necessary for assessing public and private buildings of all kinds and sizes.

Access Inspector will be a useful tool that complements local accessibility requirements in regions where regulations exist and will be an invaluable assessment tool in regions or cities lacking any accessibility requirements or accessibility consultants.

The app initial functionalities allow adding photos to the assessment check slits and creating simple reports than can be exported by email.

The developers include a wheelchair user and a disabled person's parent; therefore, they have direct disability and accessibility experience, incorporating the expectations of final users into the product.
