Here are some of the features on our portal that aim to benefit people with different abilities:

  1. Website structure:
  2. Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services website exclusively follows the recommendations laid down by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to maintain the website structure, navigation, look and feel. The user will always have a pleasant experience while browsing the portal.

  3. Reading/ Listining Text:
  4. For people with visual imparity or for those who wish to avoid eyestrain, our portal offers ReadSpeaker, a software that will enable users to listen to the content rather reading it.
