e-Accessible Knowledge

This G3ICT White Paper picks up and builds on the topics addressed at the 9th European e-Accessibility Forum, held on 8 June 2015 at the Cité des Sciences in Paris. e-Accessible Knowledge is a G3ict Business Case White Paper Series published in March 2016.

Disparities in capacity to access and use knowledge can greatly hinder the development of an inclusive society and become a significant source of inequality. This G3ict White Paper presents and discusses:
  • The need for customizable educational environments which adapt to diverse learning styles, abilities, preferences, and needs;
  • The importance of working with existing international standards that are accessible, interoperable, sustainable and recognized by industry;
  • How accessible content, learning environments and assessment methods can benefit all students, regardless of disabilities or learning differences.
  • How existing legislation can be used to challenge some of the mainstream technology and content vendors who fail to provide integrated access to their products and services.
