ILUNION Technology and Accessibility and ONCE Foundation for Cooperation and Social Inclusion of People with Disabilities in Spain are developing a study on travel behavior and accessibility in travel in different countries/ worldwide. The aim is to investigate the preferences, values and satisfaction of tourists travelling around Europe, North America and Asia.
In this survey, there are questions about frequency of travel, preferred destinations, means of transport, etc. In addition to this, there are other questions aimed to evaluating the satisfaction about the adaptation of tourist facilities, resources and services regarding the travellers’ needs and preferences.
This questionnaire is open to ALL TOURISTS WITH DISABILITIES AND ELDERLY, who have done at least with one trip with an overnight stay over the last 2 years, that want to participate in this study and wish to contribute regarding their travelling experience. We would like to remark that responses received are anonymous, and will be analysed for research purposes.
Check out our latest videos, explaining how Cloud4all can benefit users with different needs:
“Cloud4all behind the scenes: How personalisation works for Alicia“: Alicia is a 78-year old immigrant who started experiencing macular degeneration. She’s never liked technology and is having increasing difficulty with it. However, as she is losing her vision – she finds that she has to figure out how to use technology or lose her access to information. Last time she went to her therapist, the therapist introduced her to a screen reader to read things aloud when she can’t read them. She still prefers to read, and uses the screen reader only when she needs to. Mostly it is too complicated to move about the screen with the screen reader. Even when she can see the screen – it is often too confusing for her. To keep sharp and informed, she resolved to read an online international newspaper daily but she gets lost with all the information, links and banners; and the Black-on-White text tires her eyes a lot.
“Cloud4all behind the scenes: How personalisation works for Bob“: Bob is losing his sight lately. He prefers to use “regular” configuration for Windows (with just the cursor being enlarged) and move his face close to the screen to read as much as possible. However, it does not work everywhere or with all devices. Light conditions, the screen size, its angle, the kind of content or his fatigue greatly affect his ability to read the screen. When this happens, he finds that he needs different Windows features turned on and configured even during the same day and on the same device. He is never sure which one will work in each situation though.
Cloud4all has recently launched its latest report: “D5.0 Cloud4all description and innovation”
This document presents comprehensively and sharply the results of Cloud4all from different perspectives: main innovations, users’ view, the Cloud4all engine, developers’ view and scientific approach. All the contents is also scattered throughout this website.
Latest video from Cloud4all. This time the story is told from the user perspective and in Spanish. Manuel Ortega and Lourdes Garcia from Ilunion explain the development and potentiality of the project. Moreover, the video contains some testimonials from users taken from different open days.
The last 12th of March, Ilunion celebrated a GPII/Cloud4all/P4all Open Day at their Malaga premises. Due to the fact that some of the researchers working for this project are placed there, a dissemination event was organised with two target audiences, on the one hand a delegation of Computer Science and Engineering students from Utrech University (The Netherlands) and on the other, professionals working in the transport services industry.
ILUNION participated in a session about Shared Experiences towards a Corporate Social Responsibility Model (in Spanish, “Jornada de Experiencias Compartidas para un Modelo de RSE”), in the framework of the 4th National Congress of Corporate Social Responsibility last 11th February in Zaragoza (Spain).
ILUNION organised a session for presenting the R&D projects it leads, as part of the Technology Accessibility, Studies and R&D area. Cloud4all was one of these projects, and different demos as well as the Chrome extension were shown to the staff attending,
