1 Assistive Technologies and Inclusive Solutions for All Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs María Elena Gómez Martínez - Technosite First Workshop - Madrid, Spain 14 th and 15 th March, 2011

2 Basic concepts Mainstream Technologies Universal Interoperability Future Ecosystem Summary Contents Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs First Workshop

3 Interoperability is systems that work together. Basic concepts Syntactic  Data exchange. Semantic  Metadata exchange. Interoperability Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs First Workshop

4 Interoperability is the communication between Assistive Software and user’s device. Application level Operating system level Basic concepts Assistive Technologies Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs First Workshop

5 Basic concepts Mainstream Technologies Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs First Workshop PlatformATDevice

6 Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs First Workshop Mainstream technologies Current Situation

7 Presentación de la Plataforma Accesibilidad Universal Mainstream technologies Current Situation Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs First Workshop

8 Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs First Workshop Detected Problems: Accessibility architecture. Compatibility between current and previous versions. Semantic of the applications. Mainstream technologies Current Situation

9 Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs First Workshop Universal Interoperability API

10 Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs First Workshop Benefits Maximize number of users. Efficient use of functionalities of Assistive Technologies. Efficient use of functionalities of User’s Device. Compatibility. Reduce cost. Universal Interoperability API

11 Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs First Workshop

12 Future AT ecosystem Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs First Workshop

13 Future AT ecosystem Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs First Workshop Benefits Maximize computing capability. Scalability and efficiency. Always up-to-date. Anytime and anywhere available. Customized assistive solutions. Maximize compatibility between device and solutions. Reduce cost.

14 PresentInstallation of ATs from different vendors (niche) in mainstream technologies (PCs, ATMs, etc.) PresentIntegration of ATs in OS or browsers (built-in/embedded accessibility) Short-termUsage of the same API for facilitating interaction of ATs with a specific system. Accessibility API independent of platform updates. Medium-termInteroperability of ATs in different systems by a Universal Accessibility API. (Specific examples of accessibility APIs: Microsoft's UIA, Java Accessibility API, GNOME accessibility API, IAccessible2, W3C's WAI-ARIA,, Macintosh Accessibility Framework.) Long-termUbiquitous access to software ATs as a service. Cloud of ATs Summary Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs First Workshop Technical Trends

15 Vertical AT companies are concentrated on survival due to market barriers. Diversification of AT industry with different kind of ATs and more market actors. Mainstream technologies evolve rapidly. General consensus on universal APIs Delivery is a key constraint. Cloud computing an ubiquitous ATs for software ATs as a service. More open market. Combination of Open and Proprietary source solutions to foster the participation of the public. Fastest progress. Disperse knowledge. Awareness activities and coordinated networks for interchange of good practices. Tools for developers. Summary Interoperability among ATs and mainstream ICTs First Workshop Potential of a future AT ecosystem
