eXperience has a Research & Development department that focuses, among other areas of interest, its efforts to facilitate the access to the network in general. A clear example of this is the Inclusite project, developed in collaboration with the University of Valencia and CSD.
This project is cofinanced by the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism, as part of the National Plan for Scientific Research, Development and Technological Innovation 2008-2011, and by the FEDER Funds: Identification Number: TSI-020302-2010-150.
Project Summary (in development) - Nov 2010 to Dec 2012
The main goal of Inclusite is to provide the web of the necessary access tools for people with cognitive deficit or cognitive impairment comparable to those established in the physical world, such as wheelchair ramps on buildings or acoustic/audible signals in traffic lights.
The project therefore stays in line with the main area in regards with Social Welfare, since IncluSite will be a system whose vocation is to facilitate the e-inclusion of this group via Computer Technologies (TIC stands for Technology Information and Communication), reducing the access gap to the information society and promoting the personal and professional fulfillment of people with impairment, contributing to the person's wellbeing.
INCLUSITE not ony incorporates the accessibility levels, which meet the basic requisites and criteria established in Real Decreto 1494/2007 for the access of technologically impaired people, but also products and services related to the information society. Furthermore, it attempts to reach further by addressing the issues of profiles of people not contemplated in Real Decreto 1494/2007 nor in global guidelines established by WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative). In that way, equal opportunities are ensured to reach objectives of great socioeconomic impact, such as employment, education and social networks. These are the pillars of information society development.
The project IncluSite is at a development stage, and has renown and prestigious partners as participants:
