eAccess- The NEXT Frontier??

The eAccess+ network is conducting a very interesting survey regarding accessibility. For those who are involved in accessibility, as expert, in research, training, etc....

Here is the link: http://goo.gl/hHKUv

The eAccess+ network (http://www.eaccessplus.eu) is a European Commission-funded network of organisations who are promoting and supporting accessibility of ICTs, particularly Web, digital TV and self-service terminals (ATMS, kiosks etc) in industry and the public sector. One of their remits is to understand more about the level of accessibility advocacy currently taking place in Europe and elsewhere, and in particular the challenges faced in successfully engaging more organisations to adopt accessible ICTs.

Why should you take part? If you are in any way involved in promoting and supporting accessibility, they would like to hear from you. It’s an opportunity for them to gain a sense of the size and nature of the accessibility community, and for people involved in accessibility to report back on the challenges they face and the successes they have achieved. eAccess+ will report back to the European Commission on our findings, which will contribute to the future research and outreach agenda in Europe - which in turn should bring wider benefit to accessibility and ICT.

So while they are particularly keen to hear from people in Europe, they also very much welcome responses from people around the world.

The survey will be open until April 30th; the network will circulate their findings as soon as they are published.

Pass it on!
