When an earthquake occurs, in order to get safety information, the safety information registration system (SIRS) is most frequently used. Today, almost all SIRS can be accessed from personal computer but they can access from PDA, such as mobile phones. However, access of the current SIRS is more difficult, especially for visual disabled and aged people, also for the non- Japanese natives. In this study, we developed the universal SIRS with easy access for disaster vulnerable such as physically handicapped and people with language barrier. Our newly developed system enables registration of safety information by with simple operation by pushing buttons with guidance of bigger characters and multilingual audio assistance, so forth.
