Denna rapport handlar om skapandeprocessen bakom en ny samlingssida för smartphoneapplikationer som är riktad till döva och hörselskadade. Denna webbsida ska kunna ge ny information om nya smartphoneapplikationer oavsett vilken plattform användarna nyttjar. Denna rapport tar upp förstudien som utfördes innan webbsidan skapades för att kartlägga behoven fanns. Den tar även upp själva utförandet av webbsidan och vilka val som gjordes under den processen. Resultatet som utgår från det test som gjordes kommer också att återges genom en PACT-analys. Därefter kommer webbsidan att diskuteras och utvärderas genom en SWOT-analys för att belysa det som är styrkan, svagheten, möjligheten och hoten med Access: Hearing world som webbsidan heter.
