NATIVE Hotels: Charming Hotels and Accessible Tourism

30/10/2015 | 0 comments

NATIVE Hotels logoNATIVE Hotels was set up by a group of journalists from various European countries, specialized in tourism and hotels with character.

They are motivated by the desire to ensure that all visitors should have equal access to the enjoyment of their favourite hotels.

The NATIVE Hotels Web site is accessible to millions of people, who because of physical or sensorial reasons do not have the possibility of accessing conventional web sites.

Club of Hotels - Universal Accessibility

NATIVE is the only club of hotels that offers 2 sets of universal accessibility to enable all of us to navigate freely and even book our room, even if we have limitations to use conventional websites due to a disability. With the W3C system (the most used in the world) you can use a Braille Line which converts to dots the text that appears on the screen. And you can use the hearing system Jaws that reads the text on the screen as fast as you want. Among other solutions.

And with Inclusite tool you can access the information without viewing the screen, without touching the keyboard and without talking to the computer. We can simply blow on the microphone of our headphones. This system allows navigation even to a blind, mute and hands motionless user. And you can use it on any computer, not necessarily yours, because accessibility is embedded in the website and do not need peripherals or specific programs.

All the 50+ hotels listed on the NATIVE Hotels Web site have Braille and embossed signage.

For more details, see the "Accessibility" tab in the information of each hotel in the website.
