G3ict is proud to present its latest White Paper researched in cooperation and with the support of AT&T. Drawing on interviews with key stakeholders, the White Paper explores how the Internet of Things will be a game changer for persons with disabilities and seniors in the coming years.

ATLANTA, GA (August 11, 2015) — G3ict, the Global Initiative for Inclusive Information and Communication Technologies, is pleased to announce the release of a timely and critical report that explores the impact of the Internet of Things on persons with disabilities.

Recent developments in both networks and devices are enabling a much greater range of connected devices and Internet of Things (IoT) functionalities. Researched in collaboration with AT&T, the 22-page document, ‘The Internet of Things: New Promises for Persons with Disabilities,’ explores the impact of IoT on persons with disabilities. IoT opens new opportunities for persons with disabilities and seniors, giving them an unprecedented control on their environment.

 

Over the last 20 years, the Internet has brought a revolution in connecting people through the world, regardless of where they live. Today, the Internet connects objects to objects, and people to objects. The Internet of Things – with home automation, customized health care, better management of everyday tasks, transportation and energy consumption – provides an extraordinary opportunity for persons with disabilities and seniors to live independent and fulfilling lives longer and in better comfort.

 

The 2015 M-Enabling Summit, held on June 1-2, 2015 in Washington D.C., focused on those promises, and presentations by experts from industry, users and apps developers showed that they are quickly becoming a reality.

 

You can download this report for free from our Publications & Reports page. A hard copy of the report is available for purchase at MagCloud.
The G3ict White Paper Business-Case Series documents innovative accessibility solutions and good practices with real-world case studies for users and organizations seeking to improve the accessibility of their information technology, applications and services.

About G3ict
G3ict – the Global Initiative for Inclusive Information and Communication Technologies – is an advocacy initiative launched in December 2006 to promote the ICT accessibility provisions of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in cooperation with the Secretariat for the CRPD at UNDESA. Its mission is to facilitate and support the implementation of the dispositions of the CRPD promoting digital accessibility and Assistive Technologies. Participating organizations include industry, academia, the public sector and organizations representing persons with disabilities.

For additional information, visit http://www.g3ict.org.

We received this request:

Reading from e-documents like journals, books, articles, the text content is now accessible using various assistive technologies like screen reader, magnifier & Braille display. But the visual content like image or graphs or drawing are not yet fully accessible. Some tools and technologies have been introduced in this regard in the literature. But any context related, generalized solution is still missing.

This survey is designed to collect facts about the accessibility of visual elements present in e-format of document. Survey form is having few basic questions based on the objective. It will take just 5-10 minutes to fill the form and submission.

The target participant is any person accessing e-content using assistive technology or people who have such kind of requirement like learning disabled and persons working in the area.The form is accessible through the screen reader like Orca for visually impaired participants.

I request you to participate in the survey and help to decide the right path ahead.
Please forward this to as many as whom you find related with.
Thanks a lot and feel free to give your feedback.

Best regards

M-Care (Mobile Training for Home and Health Caregiver For People with Disabilities and Older People – http://mcare-project.eu/) has just released its pan-European survey among current or potential personal care givers (PCGs) in Turkey, Bulgaria, Belgium, Germany and Greece. In addition, they also contact people with disabilities (PwD), older people, family members of PwD, policy makers, training/VET centres and care centres in order to:

  • identify the needs of the project’s end-users (personal caregivers for people with disabilities and/or older people) and beneficiaries (PwD, older people, family members, stakeholders).
  • obtain a good perception of the need for adjustments in existing PCG training practices to enable the trainees (users) and beneficiaries to achieve personal accomplishment and satisfaction.
  • define a set of learning activities appropriate to and usable across a range of identified user needs.
  • gain familiarity with the nature and potential value of adjustments in training methods and in learning strategies to meet the needs of end-users and beneficiaries.
  • identify and highlight similarities and differences between national contexts in the partner countries.

In 2014, disabled people continue to face challenges in many areas of their lives. Many of these challenges involve attitudes. But what do attitudes towards disabled people currently look like? This report brings together a range of research that Scope has commissioned over the last two years to understand current attitudes towards disability and disabled people.

This also has a direct impact towards employability.
