Authorities and experts are putting a lot of effort on pushing forward accessibility of software applications but, despite this fact,.. ICT.. applications and systems are not fully accessible yet.. The triggering idea behind ACCESSIBLE is to contribute for better accessibility for all citizens, to increase the use of standards, and to develop an assessment simulation environment (including a suite of accessibility analysing tools as well as developer-aid tools) to assess efficiently, easily and rapidly the accessibility and viability of software applications for all user groups.. ACCESSIBLE will exploit the technologies behind the recent expansion of accessibility tools and standardisation methodologies, in order to provide an integrated simulation assessment environment for supporting the production of accessible software applications mobile or not..

  • Title: ACCESSIBLE EC Project
    Descriptive info: Objective.. The project aims are:.. To research and develop an Assessment Simulation module by collating and merging different methodological tools, checking the coherence with the W3C and other main standardisation works, in order to fully support and incorporate accessibility approaches for the design and development of accessible new applications.. To research and develop for the first time reliable and harmonised methodological approaches and tools for large-scale assessment accessibility of applications and services.. A harmonised Accessibility methodological framework (.. HAM.. ) will be implemented which can be incorporated to a multilayer ontology based knowledge Resource.. Thus, ACCESSIBLE will introduce for the first time a complete ontological framework (extending the ASK-IT project ontological  ...   develop accessible software applications.. To implement a developer/designer-aid framework in order to involve appropriate accessibility standards and methodologies within software development processes.. To present the accessibility evaluation results through the implementation of an.. EARL.. based Reporting module in order to export results in a form helpful to potential receivers of test results, including designers, developers and business stakeholders.. To construct prototype tests and full demonstrations, in order to evaluate the proposed system by using four specific pilot applications a) accessibility assessment of Web applications and services, b) accessibility assessment of mobile applications (including JavaFX Script applications), c) accessibility assessment of infomobility services and d) accessibility assessment of standard description languages (e.. g..

    Descriptive info: Expected impact.. ACCESSIBLE will empower research community on effective accessibility standards and technologies helping to create and improve the understanding of those aspects.. This consideration will unquestionably add to quality, accessibility and usability of software applications.. The ACCESSIBLE system will support the software development of future applications that will be more accessible and designed for all.. This project will help to overcome the fragmented approaches that are currently taking place in accessibility issues.. It will enormously contribute to inspire innovation and thus stimulate the ICT and digital content markets in Europe.. By empowering software developers, and organisations with accessibility assessment systems and ubiquitous and personalised design and developer’s aid tools, the competitiveness of Europe’s software, services will be increased in this emerging market.. ACCESSIBLE is also  ...   citizens, in general improving European software developers/designers and products’ competitiveness.. The vision behind ACCESSIBLE is to develop applications and services based on Information Communication Technologies (.. ) that will allow people with disabilities to live more independently.. Accessibility should be seen as an investment in infrastructure, leading to increased production and higher productivity.. ACCESSIBLE will establish a mean of bridging the gap between people with disabilities and non-people with disabilities online and generally close to.. technology.. Consequently, ACCESSIBLE will give more opportunities for greater synergy and link with the information society.. It means that accessibility is a concern for everyone, not only for a minority with special needs.. With an increasingly diverse and ageing society, the objective should –and will- increasingly be to promote accessibility for all..

  • Title: ACCESSIBLE EC Project
    Descriptive info: Societal and/or technological issues and needs (targeted by the innovation components of the project).. Missing framework for developers and designers for gaining insight into the accessible software development process.. Also, the implemented standards and best practices around accessibility are somewhat confusing and incomplete.. Developers need to have a harmonized conceptual framework in which to situate disabled-related guidelines, which they often do not have due to lack of experience with people with disabilities and their requirements.. Existing development tools and packaged solutions give little out-of-the-box assistance in most cases or, at worst, make it impossible to develop accessible solutions.. Lack of methodologies for the verification of accessibility for Web applications, web services, standard description languages (e.. SDL, etc) as well as mobile applications (including Java Native applications).. Increasing demand for accessible software products that can support combinations  ...   and, more surprisingly, designers, are not aware of the importance or need for accessibility as many of them do not have the necessary knowledge or skills for building accessible products.. Consequently, many software products are being built in blissful ignorance, about accessibility issues.. In addition, in many cases they don’t have appropriate accessibility mechanisms in order to solve foreseen problems on their products.. Developers need to have appropriate tools and methodologies in order to trace the status of accessibility during each stage of the overall software development process.. Getting started from this need, comes the idea of ACCESSIBLE project, which developed for the first time a reliable and harmonized methodology (HAM) and accompanying tools for large-scale accessibility assessment of products and services that cover the domains of web applications, mobile-web applications, web services and Description Languages..
