2 © Copyright 2010, Dominic Foundation - Switzerland Digital Divide is the gap between people with effective access to digital Information and Communication Technology and those with very limited or no access at all. It is a global issue which affects bilions of people world-wide, in particular in Developing countries. Among the reasons for the limited development of ICT in poor countries, we may mention: Lack of realiable broadband infrastructure; High cost for Internet connections; Cost of hardware (PC, notebooks, PDA) & software, Complexity (of usage, GUI, maintenance and installation, Accessibility, lack of a Universal Design); lack of a global solution. The AT Eco-System as well as the Accademic world and the IT Industry could not yet solve the Digital Divide and effectively include all the people in the digital era. International Organizations like UN and Governments are now actively promoting discussions and awareness and seeking for concrete and pragmatic solutions.

3 © Copyright 2010, Dominic Foundation - Switzerland A new ICT concept with a Global vision which consider all users, independently of the age, disability (or ability), location, language, know-how and income. The User Interface, Access and Content automatically customize itself according to the User Profile and Personal Configuration according users preferences and e-services selections like: Age, Language, Sex, GUI complexity, e-services selection and area of interest, local e-services and content, etc. The User Profile also includes a specific Accessibility & Usability Wizard, which will activate and automatically adjust any Assistive Tools which is already built-in like: On-Screen keyboard - keyboard layout - scanning methods – TTS - ARS & Dictation - Mouse pointer, click and speed - Screen reader - Screen Magnifier - Audio Volume level - Display setting, size, colors and contrasts - Font Size - etc. The User access has to be Hardware Independent as much as possible. Operanting System Independent. Online and Offline capability.

A platform which includes built-in ICT, accessibility tools and more important Content in several areas (education, government, health care, job opportunities, etc.) and totally accessible for a effective and global e-inclusion. A innovative solution which can address the world population starting with people living in Developing Countries, securing know-how, skills and by consequences improving the quality of life, freedom, reducing poverty, discrimination and ignorance, create a more equal, peaceful, democratic and sustainable world for everyone. Based on a new Business Model which is sustainable and ethic and can guarantee low-cost infrastructure and free access to technology, information and content.

LUCYs skeleton was found in Ethiopia in 1973 by a French-American expedition and she is estimated to have lived 3.2 million years ago.
