Raising the Floor on Access to Technology for Patrons with Disabilities

Date(s) - 10/23/2014
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm



Making library technologies accessible is a challenge—solutions are often expensive and complicated. The Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII; http://gpii.net), an international development project, plans to address those problems. People with disabilities can choose their own interface features such as large print or text-to-speech.

The GPII stores those needs and preferences in the cloud, and lets users see those interfaces on any device they encounter. GPII’s first use environment will be in libraries, with a co-development program going on right now, and small-scale pilots in 2015.

Attend this webinar and find out more about how GPII works and how your library can get involved.
