Simplified email interface that works on Gmail accounts and contains only four functions: new messages, inbox, sent messages and contacts. The system uses three functionalities that facilitate its use: SIMPLEXT, that simplifies complex texts and makes them easily intelligible; TEXT2PICTO, that transforms texts into pictograms; and TEXT2SPEECH, that reads the text aloud. The interface is available in Spanish and English.

Prodis Foundation has developed Kolumba with the aim of stimulating the incorporation of people with disabilities into the labor world. The Zero Project organization has awarded the project the prize for the best Innovative Practices 2018 in the area of accessibility.
